Rowan Scarborough has been driving the Washington insiders crazy with his sources.
The book should be very interesting. I believe it will confirm that the CIA has been operating against the President as a political entity rather than providing intelligence assesments necessary to defend our country.
I believe you're absolutely right.
Spook Daddy had to have warned young George about this. President Bush has no excuse for not having cleaned house at Langley the moment he took over. After eight years of making peace quilts for Bubba, the place had to be a total cesspool.
"It's run its course," he said. "Now we're going to move on." Despite a long history of denouncing leaks, Bush declined to express any disappointment in the people who worked for him and who were involved in disclosing the name of a CIA operative. Asked about that during a wide-ranging news conference, the president gave a dodgy answer:
"It's been a tough issue for a lot of people in the White House."
He didn't even acknowledge the undisputed fact that someone working for him was the source, saying only that "perhaps somebody in the administration did disclose the name of that person."

My question is, why doesnt President Bush name names? Why doesnt he say yes, there was a leaker in my administration. It was Richard Armitage, by his own admission. Scooter was not convicted of releasing the name of a CIA employee who was not a covert agent. Why was she not covert? Because she did not fall into that category as defined by law and as explained by the person who wrote the law.
Why wont he defend his administration and put these punks in their place? Why doesnt he clean house in the CIA? It is actions like above that makes it damned difficult to defend and support this President.
“I believe it will confirm that the CIA has been operating against the President as a political entity rather than providing intelligence assesments necessary to defend our country.”
I have thought this was the case from the beginning of the Plame fiasco. Mr. Bush ought never to have kept Tenet as Director as well.
