Seriously, Skin, if it's deniable (not simply in the sense of yes it is--no it isn't back and forthing), it's VERY debatable. If it were as straightforward as you claim, you wouldn't need to couch it as "seems". Also, as Armitage later came out and admitted he was the source (after Libby's trial), it's not "beyond a reasonable doubt clear" at all. Seems to me that you're violating your own observation about critical thinking skills in action. Face it, they were gunning for Cheney or Rove and accepted Scooter as a consolation prize in lieu of the other two.
