The White House is still keeping quiet about the leak of a CIA officer's identity to the media, despite revelations from a reporter that a top aide to the vice president was a source.

Time magazine reporter Matt Cooper has written a first-person account in this week's issue. In it, he says Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis Libby, was one of the people he talked to for a story about the intelligence agent.

Cooper also writes about a conversation he had with presidential adviser Karl Rove in 2003. He says after Rove revealed the woman worked for the CIA, Rove told him, "I've already said too much." Cooper says he didn't know exactly what that meant, but it's been on his mind for two years.

Prior to the revelations by Cooper, the White House denied that anyone close to the administration had leaked the identity of the CIA officer.
