"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Two For One

The BBC reports that Bush's aide was a source:
Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper said Mr Rove did not disclose Valerie Plame's name, but said the wife of a government critic worked for the CIA.

[snip]

Newspaper columnist Robert Novak first publicly revealed that Ms Plame was a covert CIA agent in July 2003, citing two administration officials.
OK, so we have somebody telling TWO Reporters. Not an accidental disclosure, is that?
Cooper said: "So did Rove leak Plame's name to me, or tell me she was covert? No.
"Was it through my conversation with Rove that I learned for the first time that Wilson's wife worked at the CIA and may have been responsible for sending him? Yes. Did Rove say that she worked at the 'agency' on 'WMD'? Yes."
How much clearer can things get? Tomorrow, when the Congressmen and Senators get off their secretaries and go back to work, it should be really interesting.
