Right-Wing Myths About Leak Investigation, Debunked

Right-Wing Myths About Leak Investigation, Debunked

Although special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has yet to lay out the facts in the CIA leak probe, the right-wing has already begun engaging in a spin campaign to deflect blame away from the White House.

Think Progress has put together a fact sheet debunking the right-wing myths about the leak investigation. It contains everything you need to fight back against the rights misinformation campaign.

Heres what The Note has to say about it:

As part of its broader mission of holding the brain-dead media accountable, the American Progress Action Fund, the C4 arm of the Center for American Progress, is launching a Web site today designed to prebut what the group considers right-wing myths about the Fitzgerald investigation. LINK

The folks who created it want you to think of it as a handy-dandy guide for the Gang of 500.

When conservative yappers say things like leaking classified information is no big deal because that kind of thing happens all the time in Washington, the Web site directs readers to text and video of Bush 41 saying on April 26, 1999 that exposing an undercover CIA agent is the most insidious of crimes.

Or, if someone tries to paint Fitzgerald as a runaway prosecutor, the folks at the C4 arm of John Podestas shop want you to remember that Bush 43 said Fitzgerald was conducting a very dignified investigation as recently as October 11, 2005.

Check it out for yourself.
