Conservative columnist and former CNN "Crossfire" host Robert Novak passed away today of cancer, his family has announced. He was 78 years old.
Novak was at the center of the Valerie Plame affair for being the columnist who published her name and later revealed, after gaining permission from the source, to reveal that it was Richard Armitage who mentioned her to him.
He stepped down from his position with CNN some time ago due to his being diagnosed with cancer.
May he rest in peace.
I extend sympathies and condolences to his family and loved ones.
