Another day, another BushCo lie revealed

In 2003, the White House adamantly denied having any role in the public identification of Valerie Plame as a CIA agent. The WH specifically denied any involvement of Karl Rove & Scooter Libby.

But Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper told CNN's "Late Edition" on Sunday that Rove told him Ambassador Joseph Wilson's wife was a CIA agent involved with weapons of mass destruction in a July 2003 conversation after Wilson had raised questions about one of the arguments underpinning the invasion of Iraq.

"After that conversation, I knew that she worked at the CIA, and worked on WMD issues," said Cooper, who appeared before a grand jury investigating the leak last week. "But as I made clear to the grand jury, I'm certain Rove never used her exact name and certainly never indicated she had a covert status."

Cooper said Rove ended the conversation by telling him, "I've already said too much."

The reporter recounted his 2 1/2 hours before the grand jury in a Time article this week and on Sunday talk shows. In the Time article, he said he asked Libby "if he had heard anything about Wilson's wife sending her husband to Niger. Libby replied, 'Yeah, I've heard that, too' or words to that effect."

So far two of the WH senior administrators have, at the very least, abrogated their responsibilities under EO12958 & violated their Nondisclosure Agreements and the WH continues to lie about it or spin it with arguments that they didn't say her name. I'm sure that lying about blowjobs probably killed a lot more people than the actions of this administration and most definitely warranted impeachment, unlike King George and his band of malicious men.
