Just as you suspected and knew all along, President Bush knew about the outing of Valerie Plame before it happened.
How did he know? Because he planned it with Dick Cheney.
How do we know they did it?
Their former humble servant Scott McClellan says so:
In an excerpt from his forthcoming book, McClellan recounts the 2003 news conference in which he told reporters that aides Karl Rove and I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby were “not involved” in the leak involving operative Valerie Plame.
“The most powerful leader in the world had called upon me to speak on his behalf and help restore credibility he lost amid the failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. So I stood at the White house briefing room podium in front of the glare of the klieg lights for the better part of two weeks and publicly exonerated two of the senior-most aides in the White House: Karl Rove and Scooter Libby.”
“There was one problem. It was not true,” McClellan writes, according to a brief excerpt released Tuesday. “I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest-ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice president, the president’s chief of staff and the president himself.”
Who’s going to be the newest demon condemned by the Bush Administration and the media mouthpieces of the right?
Why Scottie of course.
And a question for you Ms. Pelosi: Is impeachment still “off the table?”
