HOUSE COVER UP: BUSH SAYS YOU WILL NEVER KNOW WHO LEAKED THE CIA OPERATIVES NAME
October 9, 2003
By David Phillips
White House President Bush said that even
though the Justice Department is heading up the investigation into who leaked the CIA operatives name, said, we may never
discover who in the White House leaked the name.
Bush said that the White House has ruled
out the three White House aides, whose names have come up as the possible leaks. The three aides, whose names have been floating
around are, Senior Bush advisor Karl Rove, Dick Cheneys Chief of Staff Lewis Scooter Libby, and Elliott Abrams, Senior Director
on the National Security Counsel.
Press Secretary Scott McClellan said he
personally questioned each of the men, and has ruled them out.
President Bush gave a deadline for all
White House personnel to cooperate with the Justice Department and have all documents that have been requested by the Justice
Department to them by 5:00 pm Tuesday October 7.
All personnel have complied with President
Bushs deadline. Except the documents that were supposed to go to the Justice Department, in fact first went to the White House
Counsel for his review, which will take at least two weeks. After the White House Council is done, he will forward the documents
to the Justice Department.
This is the kind of BS that gets Bush in
1) First Bush decides against an Independent Council, in favor of the Justice Department thats run
by John Ashcroft, whom no one is going to believe.
2) Bush tells everyone in the White House, that they should cooperate with the investigation and turn
over all pertinent documents. But the documents went to the White House Council instead. Gee I wonder what Bushs Lawyer is
going to do if he finds anything first?
3) The three key names that come up as the possible leaks are questioned by the White House Press
Secretary, and he clears them and says that they did not leak the CIA operatives name. Does the Press Secretary also work
for the Justice Department?
Bush even tried to shift the blame onto
the reporters; Bush said I have no idea weather will well find out who the leaker
is partly because, in all due respect to your profession, you do a very good job of protecting the leakers.
Well Bush is probably right, in all likelihood
we will never know who leaked the name of the CIA operative, because Bush will not allow an independent investigation. Bush
dose not want us to find out who leaked the name.
