Letter to Bush Sent Today --- President Must Keep National Security a Priority

Washington, DC – Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) sent a letter today to President George Bush requesting that he immediately direct Karl Rove’s security clearances be suspended pending the outcome of the government’s investigation into the leak of Valerie Plame’s identity as an undercover agent for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

As reported today in Newsweek, Karl Rove was a confidential source for Time magazine reporter Matt Cooper on the identification of a covert CIA agent. Rove disclosed that Ambassador Joseph Wilson’s trip to Iraq to investigate charges that Iraq was trying to buy uranium from Niger was authorized by Mr. Wilson’s wife, a CIA employee working on issues related to weapons of mass destruction. At that time, Valerie Plame, Ambassador Wilson’s wife, was a covert operative with the CIA whose identity as such had not yet been publicly revealed.

Under federal law, it is a crime to “intentionally disclose[] any information identifying

can the White House stonewall? Won't they have to make a statement at some point??

They will keep it up longer than the shrub is in office. We will never learn the truth because the newsmedia is afraid of loeing their access and ability to ask questions in press conferences. the only statement we will hear is "no comment"

This administration can stonewall forever!! They think they do not have to be accountable for anything....unless it is to their advantage....and they are getting away with it!

But even if they stone wall,how does it make them look!
The polls will go down and suspicion will form in the minds of more Americans!

But it's the GOP party that is going to pay a heavy price,if they don't move fast there will be no gop party left!

This is our ace in the hole-every GOP congressman is feeling the noose tightening around their neck. This is where we need to put our attention.

Dubja' (Spanish for: Dubya') is beginning to squirm and play with the chair in the Oval Office; a chair which has always been too "big" for him, even with a "booster seat".

I am watching C-Span right now and it is open forum time of sorts for the congress to speak for about a minute. So far 75 percent of the democrats are calling for Rove's head on a platter or at least an investigation into the leak. Not one republican uttered a peep about it. If the building was on fire would the democrats be heading out the door while the republicans ignored the situation?
These are supposed to be our best people representing us.....
I'm at a total loss for words...I identify myself as a Republican. I've been lied to.
As a side not I saw the video of the Downing street minutes live on c-span and was very proud of thos folks for theire testimony.
God help us.
Have a very good and safe day folks.
