Bush authorized release of Valerie Plame’s identity?

Wait a second – no way. I could have sworn that the president promised to fire anyone who leaked Agent Valerie Plame’s identity to the press. When Robert Novak published his article outing her as an operative, I had to spew my opinion about it then – click here if you care what that opinion was. Then, those people turned out to be Scooter Libby (Dick Cheney’s chief-of-staff) and Karl Rove (who has since laid low and was not, contrary to the president’s promise, fired). Now, Libby is pointing the finger at W himself. What’s interesting is – rather than denying it happened, the White House is saying it releases information that may be in the best interest of our national security. What?!

 I cannot rant and rave about this for too long because I’m on call and have a lot of work to do, but it’s been on my mind for the past day or two, and I can’t help but wonder how this one will turn out. My guess is that it will be just like all of the other scandals associated with this administration – it was be swept under the rug, and anyone who challenges it is just plain unpatriotic.
