CIA fires agent for doing same thing Bush, Rove and Libby did - leaking classified info to media

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Funny that it's okay for George Bush, Karl Rove, and Scooter Libby to leak classified information to the media - information that was NOT yet declassified (that's a crime, thank you) - but when a CIA agent does the same thing to reveal that the US government is illegally spying on innocent American citizens, that leaker is fired.

Has that leaker been indicted? No. Arrested? Not that we know of. All we needed was the simple admission, and he was fired. Yet Karl Rove has been permitted to keep his job in the Bush White House for 2, or was it 3 years now, that the administration knew Karl and Scooter were the leakers, and they did NOTHING to correct the situation. They wouldn't fire Scooter until he was indicted (and Scooter was leaking false information to trick the American people to support a war!), and Karl Rove is STILL working for the Republicans, and likely out of the White House, running the fall elections, even though we now know for a fact that he leaked classified information to the media.

Then there's Bush authorizing the Scooter Libby leak even though he hadn't yet declassified the information. And let's not forget Bush's leak of classified information to Bob Woodward for his first post-9/11 book. Leaks are wonderful things in the Bush administration so long as they're not whistleblower leaks.

It's okay for George Bush, Karl Rove and Scooter Libby to leak and keep their jobs until they're indicted, but not someone who actually reveals illegal and immoral activities of the Bush administration.


And they say it's just a coincidence the dictator of China is visting this week. Bush would make him proud.
