The screws continue to turn…

A short post I did last week on “President” Bush possibly being the one who approved the leaking of Valerie Plame’s name drew some heavy criticism from a conservative who left some comments, believing that I was inferring guilt onto President Bush (like he needs help from me or anyone else to infer guilt onto himself)

Now come incendiary words from a fellow-Republican who wants to know exactly what happened and is demanding that the White House explain the leak.

The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) told Fox “News” on Sunday that “I think that it is necessary for the president and vice president to tell the American people exactly what happened… We ought to get to the bottom of it so it can be evaluated, again, by the American people.”

This isn’t liberal-conjecture or spin here; this is a conservative Republican calling (on Bush media-whore Fox News) for the White House, specifically President Bush and Vice President Cheney, to tell the American people what happened in regards to the leak.

No spin is needed. Decide for yourself.

Bush pays lip service to national secrets, then "declasifies" those that suit his purposes. But just try and find out what is going on in the White House and you'll find yourself locked out. I truly believe that no one can find out what goes on in there because no one in the White House knows what the hell they're doing.

Would like to see "Georgy" give an explanation for his leak in front of a non-screened group of reporters. Love watching him have to think on his feet and thoroughly enjoy his pouty look when he can't dodge a question.

I have no doubt that Cheney and Bush are involved in the "leak".
Furthermore, I indeed was amused
to the "max" when the White House House press secretary tried to "wiggle" out of his boss' predicament. But did he ever fail!
Sounded to me like Orwell's ANIMAL FARM when the propagandist pig Squealer kept changing the commandments of democracy to fit the ruling pigs'dictatorial needs.
I have never been so ashamed of our executive branch of government.

If they explain the leaks;get them to explain the lies,and the other deceit they have used to get their jobs done.The terror lies in not knowing the truth.
