News Flash! Bush States the Obvious

I would like this to end as quickly as possible so we know the facts, and if someone committed a crime, they will no longer work in my administration.

George W. Bush - 2005/07/18

Well...almost certainly, Mr. President since this particular crime happens to carry up to 15 years in the Federal pen as the door prize, but perhaps you'd like to square this little piece of backtracking with the following:
In Sea Island, Ga. in June 2004, Mr. Bush was asked whether he would fire anyone who was involved in leaking Ms. Wilson's name - which might or might not violate the law, depending on the circumstances. Without hesitation, Mr. Bush said yes.

N.Y. Times

So the question arises again: Are you a liar, ethically challenged, or both, Mr President?
