    Bush Approved Leak of Iraq Arms Intelligence, Libby Testified -- Bloomberg.com

    Bloomberg.com says President Bush authorized disclosure of classified information on Iraq's weapons program to rebut war critics, a former top administration aide told a grand jury, according to documents filed in federal court. The documents don't allege the president approved the identification of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame, although they were filed in connection with the investigation into who leaked the operative's name to reporters in 2003. The court filing by special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald also doesn't suggest Bush violated any rule or law governing the handling of classified material. In the filing, Fitzgerald describes Libby's testimony about disclosure to former NY Times reporter Judy Miller of a 2002 National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq's pursuit of nuclear materials. "Defendant testified that the vice president later advised him that the president had authorized defendant to disclose the relevant portions of the NIE,'' Fitzgerald wrote.

    If Bush has authority to divulge this information, how exactly does that constitute a "leak".
  3. Oh but Bush "only" declassified sensitive intelligence information, outed a covert CIA agent for political purposes and then repeatedly lied to the american people that he was not involved in the leak. The severity of this certainly does not come close to lying under oath about a blow job.

    Restoring honor and dignity in the White House - one outed CIA agent at a time.
  4. Good thing Bush didn't get a little side action in the White House... he'd get impeached for that!!! :D
  5. Actually he does not need to get impeached any more, he promised to fire the leaker...that would be himself and Cheney.
  6. i heard they were going hunting.
  7. What part of this do ya'll not understand:

    The documents don't allege the president approved the identification of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame
  8. libby testified to the grand jury that cheney gave him the green light per bush's permission.

    bottomline.. they are turning on poor simple dumbya. lol lol lol... he gives them their war.. and now they are done with him. time for a scapegoat. lol lol lol
  9. Actually, it sounds more like, to me, that the "scapegoat" (Libby), is fighting back. Georgie and "Gunner", it seems, has allowed the wolves to tear off more flesh than the "goat" cared to part with.
  10. why do you hate america?

    what are you, some kind of commun... errr... terrorist sympathizer? didn't you hear there's a war going on? a war means bush's handlers can do whatever they want.

    now get back on your knees and stop talking out of turn. :mad:
