Bush Ready to Cooperate in CIA Leak Case
- WASHINGTON - President Bush said Thursday he was ready to cooperate in the grand jury investigation of who leaked the name of a covert CIA operative last year and that he had consulted with an attorney to determine if he needs legal advice.
He's "ready to cooperate"???
Didn't he say when it first happened that he was "determined" to find out who it was? But now, he's basically admitting that he was blockading any investigation? Does this guy EVER tell the truth?
- "I've told our administration that we'll fully cooperate with their investigation" Bush said. "I want to know the truth. I'm willing to cooperate myself."
So, I'd better get a lawyer.
- "In terms of whether or not I need advice from counsel, this is a criminal matter, it's a serious matter," the president said.
It's a criminal matter. Bush basically just said that there was a criminal in the administration and he knows it, but he has shown NO INTEREST in finding out who it was.
Someone in the Bush administration risked our national security because of sheer political invictiveness.
And the guy in charge needs to have his arm twisted in order to find out who.
