Truth and Consequences?

Okay, so it wasn’t a leak if it was information that the president had declassified.
So, why didn’t bush tell us that instead of this on Oct. 7, 2003

“Dana.
Q Mr. President, beyond the actual leak of classified information, there are reports that someone in the administration was trying to -- after it was already out -- actively spread the story, even calling Ambassador Wilson's wife "fair game." Are you asking your staff is anyone did that? And would it be wrong or even a fire-able offense if that happened?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, the investigators will ask our staff about what people did or did not do. This is a town of -- where a lot of people leak. And I've constantly expressed my displeasure with leaks, particularly leaks of classified information. And I want to know, I want to know the truth. I want to see to it that the truth prevail. And I hope we can get this investigation done in a thorough way, as quickly as possible.”

PoP,
Let's just hope that this is the final proverbial nail in the coffin.
I don't see how this administration could possibly have a shred of credibility after this revelation.

The president does not have the power to disclose the idenity of a covert CIA operative. He cannot engage in espionage, which is what he did. Because of his actions, Plame's mission was basically destroyed (tracking arms sales to the middle east, nothing to be taken lightly) and her identity as well as the identities of those involved was revealed. The White House refuses to release the information regarding how many lives were lost because of Bush's vindictiveness.

Can we all chip in and hire an attorney to represent us in US vs. Liars?

Henry Waxman sent a great letter to the president. It is great in that it pulls together a lot of information around the leaking of classified information into one place. There is a .pdf file of the letter at this link.

Quick, call a plumber to fix these leaks!

Or maybe a urologist if it's that kind of leaking.

He hates leaks, huh? I'm pretty sure that the report said Libby fingered Bush in 2003, but it's just coming out now? Fitzgerald runs a good office, eh? How long did it take Bush to go after Wilson with a leak? Hmmm... days, maybe...

Bush has no credibility.

I'm a little behind - posted this morning about McClellan's press conference.

The truth is not in them.
