Andrea Mitchell: I 'Messed Up' on Leakgate Answer

This is Mitchells third different attempted explanation since her erronious comments were brought to light.

Senior NBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell said Wednesday morning that she "messed up" when she told an interviewer in 2003 that Valerie Plame's CIA identity was "widely known."

But despite the startling comment, Mitchell said she still hasn't been contacted by Leakgate Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald.

For the second time in two weeks, radio host Don Imus grilled Mitchell on her Oct. 2003 remarks, where she told CNBC's Alan Murray that Plame's CIA connection was "widely known among those of us who cover the intelligence community and who were actively engaged in trying to track down who among the foreign service community was the envoy to Niger."

Now the obvious question is, how many other things have you "messed up" over the years Andrea ?
