I'm Shocked!

Not really.

Rove's words on the Plame case have always been carefully chosen. "I didn't know her name. I didn't leak her name," Rove told CNN last year when asked if he had anything to do with the Plame leak. Rove has never publicly acknowledged talking to any reporter about former ambassador Joseph Wilson and his wife. But last week, his lawyer, Robert Luskin, confirmed to NEWSWEEK that Rove did—and that Rove was the secret source who, at the request of both Cooper's lawyer and the prosecutor, gave Cooper permission to testify.

I'm so impressed that he managed to destroy her career without ever mentioning her name.

President Bush stated at one time:

There are too many leaks of classified information in Washington. If there's leaks out of my administration, I want to know who it is, and if the person has violated the law, the person will be taken care of.

That phrase, "...taken care of." I'm interested to see exactly what that means. My guess is still that Rove, with the backing of the President, will weasel out of any real responsibility.

I think it's absolutely disgusting that the White House is standing behind Rove on this. I hope Congress opens an investigation and gets his ass out of there. Is there a way to get Bush impeached for supporting Rove on this?
