Cheney and Libby

Report: Cheney Authorized Libby to Leak CIA Report

We know: “Duh!” right? Well, here’s what’s new: The author of this article, using newly surfaced Libby testimony, all but accuses Cheney of outing Valerie Plame as a CIA agent—which has been widely suspected but never confirmed. The National Journal’s Murray Waas (the country’s leading news-breaker on this story) has the scoop.

Bush Channels Nixon in Libby Scandal

In 1977, Nixon said, “When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal”?
Well, Bush’s lawyers allegedly said this about the leak of classified intelligence: “Presidential authorization to publicly disclose a document amounted to declassification of the document.”
Got it? When the president leaks it, that means it is not illegal.
UPDATE: the White House tries to quell the furor over the leak.

New Panel Assembled to Study Iraq War Policy

Congress convened this bipartisan group of 10 prominent Americans—which includes former Secretary of State James Baker and former CIA Director William Casey—to assess Bush’s policies in Iraq.
We can’t decide whether adults are finally being brought in to clean up the president’s mess or this is a way of ignoring an issue by appointing a blue-ribbon panel to study it. Thoughts, anyone?

White House Opens Efforts Against Media Leaks

Bush & Co. have launched FBI probes, polygraph investigations and warnings from the Justice Dept. to stem leaks of classified (and non-classified) information to reporters.
Imagine if Bush were to spend an equal amount of time addressing the problems surfaced via the leaks….
Of course he never would do that, but perhaps he could ask Karl Rove what kind of information he has leaked….

Friends Don’t Let Friends Use Torture

Condi Rice is so tired of Old Europe and its human rights complaints. Big deal, so the CIA is using Soviet era torture camps in Eastern Europe to stash “war on terror” prisoners.  Don’t those fusspots in the EU understand that our use of torture is fundamentally different because we are the good guys and that Eastern Europe has been liberated?  That outmoded European slogan of “friends don’t let friends use torture” is so over.
