George Walker Bush: The Man with the Answers
Sometime ago, back on July 26 of 2005, when all the news coverage was talk of Karl Rove, President Bush, reporter Novak, and CIA operative Valerie Plame, and who s the person who leaked her name to the news media. I posed the questions that had been posed more than 30 years ago to another Republican president who was consumed by meglomania, overwhelmed by questions of duplicity, wrongdoing, and illegal activities-RICHARD MILHOUSE NIXON.
The questions back in 1973 pertained to the Watergate break-in. "What did Nixon know?" and "When did he know it?"
I asked the same questions of the current president on this blog last July. "What did Bush know?" and "When did he know it?"
Somebody, please, tell the Philadelphia 76'ers Allen Iverson to move over. Dubya is now the answer!
We now have the answers to those burning questions.
GEORGE WALKER BUSH, President of the United States of America, knew from the inception of this nefarious plan. He is responsible for disclosing the name of a CIA operative to the press. He alone is the person who placed that agent and hundreds of others, including our military, in harm's way.
I said it last July, and I reiterate today in April 2006 this is about accountability by the President of the United States. It’s about integrity. The president said if he found out someone in the White House was involved in leaking Plame’s name to the press that person would be dismissed. He and his advisors have already backed away from that statement by saying the person will be terminated if the act is found to be illegal. Criminality should not be the standard for dismissal, but if that's all we've got to work with, then so be it!
I, for one, Mr. President, expect you'll be packing to return to Crawford, Texas by the end of this month....and taking the vice president with you.
After all if you can’t trust the word of the president, whom can you trust?
