20. It's a gamble
at best. Bush needs everyone indicted to quit. That includes, of course, anyone listed as an unindicted co-conspirator. Even Matthews pointed out Bush needs to be proactive tomorrow, and fire them. If he doesn't, he is invested in their defense. But the neocons are relying on Bush's natural stupidity and stubborn streak. They will sacrifice the host to promote the parasite's ability to survive.

The problem for them is that they do not want to make things public. They are relying upon federal courts to say they do not have to release information. The chances of this carrying the day seem remote. The more they struggle, the better it becomes.
