Divine Right of Bushes

So the aide turns out to have been loyally following his leader’s dictates, rather than going around the boss’s back to peddle secret information.
Scooter is a “good Judas,” as it turns out, just as Judas himself was, according to a 1,700-year-old Christian manuscript found in the Egyptian desert that asserts that Jesus wanted Judas to betray him, so he entrusted his disciple with special intelligence.
“You can see how early Christians could say, if Jesus’ death was all part of God’s plan, then Judas’s betrayal was part of God’s plan,” Dr. Karen King, a professor of the history of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School, told The Times.
Since President Bush seems to see his mission in Iraq as part of God’s plan, he must have assumed that getting Scooter Libby to leak parts of a classified document on Iraq to rebut Joe Wilson’s charge about a juiced-up casus belli was part of God’s plan.
