White House Rules Out Three Aides in Leak on CIA
White House Rules Out Three Aides in Leak on CIA

Oct. 7 By Randall Mikkelsen
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Tuesday ruled out three top aides as the source of a news leak identifying an undercover CIA officer whose husband was critical of Bush administration Iraq policy.

White House spokesman Scott McClellan said he had talked to each of the aides ahead of a 5 p.m. deadline on Tuesday for officials to turn over information in a Justice Department probe of the leak.

He left open the possibility the leaker would never be found. "I think all of us in this room know that it sometimes can be difficult to determine anonymous sources. But let me emphasize ... no one wants to get to the bottom of it more than the president of the United States," he said.

McClellan said senior Bush political aide Karl Rove, vice presidential chief of staff Lewis Libby and National Security Council senior director Elliott Abrams, had each denied being the source of the leak, which identified CIA operative Valerie Plame. McClellan said he talked to the officials in response to news reports he called "unsubstantiated."

SNIPPED

Didn't think so.

2. Here's a poll: Are we really as stupid as they think we are?
( ) Yes
( ) No
( ) They who?

I can't believe they even have the <insert body part reference> to say this shit in public.
