Libby trial: Defense goes on the offense

The Defense in the Scooter Libby trial played audio of Bob Woodward’s interview with Richard Armitage.  The one thing that has never made any sense to me is Woodward’s role in this whole case.  He was the first one to be told by anyone that Joe Wilson’s wife worked at the CIA.  He has it on tape.  He does nothing with the information.  Wasn’t that news?  Wasn’t that BIG news?  Karl Rove then confirms that Wilson’s wife works at the CIA.  So, Wordward is the first reporter in Washington to have this information and he does nothing with it?  Okay.  Let’s just say that Woodward doesn’t think that it is news.  The Washington Press guys begin to buzz about Joe Wilson and his wife.  Woodward says nothing.  Articles are appearing in the Washington Post, the NY Times and all over TV.  He says nothing.  An investigation is called.  He says nothing.  A special prosecutor is called.  He says nothing.  I just don’t understand.
