Bush whacked Rove on CIA leak

New York Daily News - Home - Daily News Exclusive: Bush whacked Rove on CIA leak:
"Bush has always known that Rove often talks with reporters anonymously and he generally approved of such contacts, one source said.

But the President felt Rove and other members of the White House damage-control team did a clumsy job in their campaign to discredit Plame's husband, Joseph Wilson, the ex-diplomat who criticized Bush's claim that Saddam Hussen tried to buy weapons-grade uranium in Niger.

A second well-placed source said some recently published reports implying Rove had deceived Bush about his involvement in the Wilson counterattack were incorrect and were leaked by White House aides trying to protect the President."

This is the article that opened the door to the pResident's being guilty of lying to the public and hindering justice in the Plame case. It could also lead to the conclusion that Bush was in on the deceptions being promoted as excuses for invading Iraq. Impeach him now!
