Long ago we had this:
Mr. Bush said in June 2004 that he would fire anyone in his administration shown to have leaked information that exposed the identity of Plame, the wife of former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, an outspoken critic of the president's Iraq policy. (emphasis added)Even earlier we had this:
McClellan at a September 29, 2003, press briefing:So, Mr. President, what about Karl Rove? And don't say it is an ongoing investigation, because, according to Rove's lawyer, he is off the hook.
McCLELLAN: The president has set high standards, the highest of standards for people in his administration. He's made it very clear to people in his administration that he expects them to adhere to the highest standards of conduct. If anyone in this administration was involved in it [the leaking of Plame's identity], they would no longer be in this administration. (emphasis added)
We're waiting......and waiting.....and waiting.
Oops, its November, 2008.
