Bush Unsure if Name Leaker Will Be Caught
Bush Unsure if Name Leaker Will Be Caught

WASHINGTON - President Bush questioned on Tuesday whether investigators would be able to determine who leaked the identity of an undercover CIA officer but said his staff was cooperating. "I want to know the truth," he said.

Bush's chief of staff, Andrew Card, urged some 2,000 White House employees to turn over any relevant documents by Tuesday night. White House lawyers will screen the materials and decide which ones to send to the Justice Department as part of a criminal inquiry into the leak, Bush spokesman Scott McClellan said.

McClellan said it could take as long as two weeks to check those submissions for relevance.

The spokesman would not rule out the possibility that the White House would invoke executive privilege to shield sensitive documents from the Justice Department's inquiry. He said it was premature to talk about such a step.

3. leaker
You just know that he knows who did it. He is playing his little games with us and he will get by with it just like he has gotten by with everything else. Idi Amin wanted to be president for life also.

2. In other words: "That's our story and we're sticking to it!"
If you lie make sure you stick to it.

at protecting their sources.

5. Bush cant find Osama bin Who or Saddam what ......
makes anyone think he could find a leaker in the vast number of "top administration" official. That number could be as high as 20,000 people. You know what ever it takes to obscure the real facts. :smoke:

6. That's funny, two weeks ago they were saying,
"No one has asked us for any phone records or anything" which sounded like an obvious signal for operatives to destroy phone records.

7. He said that he COULD find them
if only the 'liberal' press would reveal their sources.

8. Hey! Knock it off!
You guys just Hate America, don't you! He's going to get 'em! Don't worry for one second that he won't. Why, he's putting his best on the case.

And they're really good. Look how well they're 'doin trackin' that Osama fella, and that other eveildoer in Iraq! Soon as they get them in Gitmo, they'll be right on it. Any day now.

Heck, I'll even give you the damn date - should be about November 5th.
Mebbe a day or two later. In 2008!!! So there!

9. He is hoping this will die down
and go away. Need to hold some one accountable and follow the trail as far as it goes.

10. He's probably hiding behind Osama
that's why they can't find him.

11. He'll see to it...
No, I think Bush is almost certain the leaker will never be caught.
