15. Wrong. The Act (link inside) applies to ANYONE that reveals the....
Edited on Wed Jul-06-05 11:02 PM by Media_Lies_Daily
...identity of an undercover intelligence operative:



421. Protection of identities of certain United States undercover intelligence officers, agents, informants, and sources

(a) Disclosure of information by persons having or having had access to classified information that identifies covert agent

(b) Disclosure of information by persons who learn identity of covert agents as result of having access to classified information

(c) Disclosure of information by persons in course of pattern of activities intended to identify and expose covert agents

< >


Read subparagraph (b) very carefully. It basically states that ANYONE who discloses the name of an undercover operative because of ACCESS to classified information is gulty of committing a felony.

"Access" can be defined as a glimpse of a classified document, a phone call discussing classified information, or a conversation with someone who is realying classified information.

Mr. Rove is confident of NOTHING. Mr. Rove has stated NOTHING. Mr. Rove's lawyer is blowing unfiltered high-test smoke that some of you are buying.
