    Libby was indicted, and convicted, of lying to the FBI by denying that he had outed Plame when in fact he had. I don't see how his conviction for perjury rather than the original leak means the leak didn't happen. The fact of the leak is an essential element of the offense.

      The lies involved how and when he learned that Plame had worked for the CIA, and didn't even touch on whether he knew that she had, at one point, been used as an undercover asset.

      Nobody -- NOBODY -- was ever indicted for breaking the law you're thinking of.
