"I think he told me the name," Fleischer said under cross examination, directly contradicting Libby's claim that he got Plame's name from NBC's Tim Russert.
According to CNN, Libby's attorneys "blame bad memory for any discrepancies in what he told investigators and a grand jury and say he may have been distracted by urgent national security matters."
Yeah, tell it to the judge.
