Could the Perjury Investigation Evolve Into Obstruction of Justice?

Crooks and Liars points us to a March 6, 2004 CNN article reporting that Air Force One records were subpoenaed in the Valerie Plame grand jury investigation, and to America Blog who has a flashback to President Bush's statement of October 6, 2003 in which he told his staff to cooperate with the grand jury investigation.
I'm beginning to wonder, and it's only a musing at this point not an allegation, given all of the Administration officials who were interviewed by the grand jury or who testified before the grand jury, including President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Colin Powell, Scott McClellan and others, and the reporters other than Miller and Cooper who previously revealed their sources to the grand jury (e.g., Tim Russert and Walter Pincus,) whether there might not be more than one person who perjured themselves, or whether there might have been a plan for the real source to mislead the grand jury - or a coverup designed to protect the real source, which could constitute obstruction of justice.
Here are some some more flashbacks to prior reported information. I'll leave it to readers to connect any dots. All sources are available on Lexis.com:
