Novak: Ask Bush About CIA Leak Source
"I'm confident the president knows who the source is," Novak told the luncheon audience on Tuesday. "I'd be amazed if he doesn't. So I say, 'Don't bug me. Don't bug Bob Woodward. Bug the president as to whether he should reveal who the source is.' "
Novak was the first person to publicly expose Plame’s identity after someone in the Bush administration spilled her name in retaliation against her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who wrote a New York Times column revealing that the White House had lied about pre-war intelligence on Iraq.
So, after saying that he would fire anyone in his employ found to be committing such treason – and then amending it to “...anyone in my administration [who] committed a crime...” -- it’s starting to look more and more like Bush went beyond being disingenuous, to actually covering for the person who did it.
Yeah, this is a real patriotic bunch, all right.
