And the Winner Is... Karl Rove (Updated)

Like we all couldn't have predicted this back in 2003/2004, but just for good measure, here's what Bush had to say on the subject:
If there's a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is. If the person has violated law, that person will be taken care of.

George W. Bush -- February 11, 2004

Well and good. Rove may have outed Valerie Plame deliberately in retaliation for Joseph Wilson (her husband) not towing the party line, or he may simply have spoken with extremely poor judgment, but that should be for a jury to decide.

So now Mr. President you have a choice. You can put up by ensuring that the coming indictment isn't obstructed by you, the Justice Department, or your Republican lackeys in congress. Or... you can SHUT THE FUCK UP!

From the N.Y. Times:
For two years, the White House has insisted that presidential adviser Karl Rove had nothing to do with the leak of a CIA officer's identity. And President Bush said the leaker would be fired. But Bush's spokesman wouldn't repeat any of those assertions Monday...
So... in the face of direct questioning by the White House Press Corp, McClellan clams up. What a bunch of spineless, ethically impaired, assholes.

Keep up hte good work ;~0
Yeah, except Rove didn't break the law.

1. Valerie Plame wrote a memo suggesting the CIA send her husband. Hardly the action of a "covert" agent.

2. Joe Wilson referenced the CIA sending him (since his wife was the one recommending, it can be argued he mentioned her first).

3. Walter Pincus wrote an article in June, 2003 (a month before Novak's article) citing "an analyst at the CIA" - which was obviously Plame.

4. A Senate investigation showed Joe Wilson was a liar and produced Plame's memo.

5. Rove doesn't meet the elements of the crime of "outing an undercover agent"...

6. This will die an ugly death like all other Bush-hating witchhunts.

7. Liberals will continue to lose until they get back in touch with reality.
Hmm... well that will be for the grand jury to determine. Won't it? That **IS** why we have grand juries.

One thing's for sure, McClellan is going to look like the double-talking shill that he is for shooting his mouth off in 2003.
