Note that we didn’t know this already, but now it’s been confirmed… And of course “they” are saying it was technically legal, although “unusual.” Whatever. What about his bold face lie when the original Valerie Plame / Joe Wilson / No Yellowcake / WMD lies scandal broke? Bush said he didn’t authorize any leak and would figure out who did and get rid of him/her/them. Sounds like OJ saying he’s going to catch whoever killed Ron Brown and Linda Goldman. Jackasses.
