Lawyer: Bush Left Leak Details to Cheney

My Way News - Lawyer: Bush Left Leak Details to Cheney:
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush declassified sensitive intelligence in 2003 and authorized its public disclosure to rebut Iraq war critics, but he did not specifically direct that Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby, be the one to disseminate the information, an attorney knowledgeable about the case said Saturday.

Bush merely instructed Cheney to 'get it out' and left the details to him, said the lawyer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case for the White House. The vice president chose Libby and communicated the president's wishes to his then-top aide, the lawyer said.
Well, another cat is out of the bag, so to speak. How much longer is this administration going to get away with high crimes and misdemeanors (outing CIA agents, lying to Congress, spying on Americans without warrants, taking bribes,...) and abject incompetence (Katrina aftermath, intelligence failures, 9/11,...)?!!! Probably until November, but this is ridiculous!
