Stephen Hadley won't say if he was the source who told Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward that Bush administration critic Joseph Wilson's wife worked for the
CIA. But Hadley volunteered on Friday that some administration officials say he's not the leaker.
President Bush at a summit here, Hadley was asked at a news briefing whether he was Woodward's source.
Referring to news accounts about the case, Hadley said with a smile, "I've also seen press reports from White House officials saying that I am not one of his sources." He said he would not comment further because the CIA leak case remains under investigation.
Leaving the room, Hadley was asked if his answer amounted to a yes or a no. "It is what it is," he said.
