Re: Bush Strikes Back

Will any MSM editorial page demand an investigation of this leak? Or is it the belief of the MSM that the truthful revelation that CIA operative Valerie Plame got her partisan retired husband assigned an African boondoggle more significant than actual breaches of national security in wartime?

As Bush noted: “This is a highly classified program that is crucial to our national security. Its purpose is to detect and prevent terrorist attacks against the United States, our friends and allies. Yesterday the existence of this secret program was revealed in media reports, after being improperly provided to news organizations. As a result, our enemies have learned information they should not have, and the unauthorized disclosure of this effort damages our national security and puts our citizens at risk. Revealing classified information is illegal, alerts our enemies, and endangers our country.”
