open toed scandals

where the democrats couldn't get anything to stick, the cia might have just a little more tenacity...

the justice department is starting an investigation into whether awol's administration leaked the name of an undercover cia operative to get back at her husband, who had the temerity to disagree with them.

cbsnews says the white house has already started damage control, with one unidentified senior administration official telling the washington post the leak was "wrong."

the washpost goes into detail:

yesterday, a senior administration official said that before [robert] novak's column ran, two top white house officials called at least six washington journalists and disclosed the identity and occupation of [ambassador joseph] wilson's wife. wilson had just revealed that the cia had sent him to niger last year to look into the uranium claim and that he had found no evidence to back up the charge. wilson's account touched off a political fracas over bush's use of intelligence as he made the case for attacking iraq.

condeleeza rice is already doing a fast tap dance around the facts. cnn says:

rice, speaking on "fox news sunday," said she "knew nothing of any such white house effort to reveal any of this."

"certainly it would not be the way the president expected his white house to operate," she said.

most egregious of all, the bosglobe reminds us:

the intentional disclosure of a covert operative's identity can violate federal law.

tucker carlson better bone up his bone head repubbb rants to cover on crossfire...looks like novak might be spending some time upstate, if you know what we mean!
