The Center for American Progress’ news gathering offshoot, Think Progress, has gathered together a list of 21 administration officials that “have known connections to the outing of an undercover CIA agent”.

While the focus tends to be on Karl Rove, and sometimes “Scooter” Libby … this scandal’s depth and breadth is nicely gathered together — across multiple departments, after the fold ….
Think Progress’ efforts have always ranged from very good to outstanding, in my opinion.  This effort ranks right up there with the top.

For each individual listed, their position in the administration is provided, along with sourced quotes from mainstream press tying them to the investigation by Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.

Let the Frog March Roll Call begin:

Further good news from Think Progress:

It will be updated regularly to reflect news developments on the case and will serve as a reference for anyone looking for the most up to date information on the investigation.

Think Progress goes on to quote ABC’s The Note:

In an age when the general public would be shocked at the degree to which major news organizations are wholly dependent on interest groups for their research, this one will get some Gang of 500 bookmarking.

Let’s hope Fitzgerald is quickly successful in getting these indictments out.  After all, Abramoff was yesterday — let’s keep the momentum going!
