Aljazeera SMACKS Junior on Rove: "Bush says one thing does another"
http://www.aljazeera.com/cgi-bin/review/article_full_st...

Hands up those who believed George W. Bush would actually fire his aide, Karl Rove. Rove who was responsible for transforming a Texan businessman into a serious politician and thus made himself the second most powerful man in Washington.

President Bush cannot exist without Rove at his side.

It was nothing more than an empty promise when President Bush vowed to fire any White House staffer involved in the revenge outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame. Now that Rove and Vice President Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, have been identified as the culprits, Bush changed the standards he himself set by saying -- they must've "committed a crime."

That means indicted, tried and convicted. If Rove and Libby are charged, which seems wholly improbable in any event, the trial could be years away, assuming that the Justice Department, Bush-appointed judges and the Bush-controlled Republican Congress would even think of going up against Rove. Roves influence shouldnt be underestimated. The man President Bush calls "The Architect" of his political victories, is hatching his own escape from justice.

2. Read the last half of the article...it's twice as strong.
It's a full-blown indictment on an illegal and immoral war. This kind of stuff usually falls into the "propaganda" category, but the irony is that WE are the ones being "catapulted" by our own "president."
