"I've already said too much..." -KR

Yeah, I think he's right...

Another gem from Cooper's upcoming article, appearing tomorrow in Time:

...Rove said 'things will be declassified soon'

But why wait for declassification when you can blow an agent's cover in order to smear an opponent right away?

Rep. Waxman shows why Rove's security clearance should be revoked immediately.

More context from Truthout and Talk Left.

Hey, Paul:

Hard to judge all of this -- especially Cooper's article. I don't think he knows what's going on.

I do think that getting caught up in the legalisms is at this point premature and at all points beside the point. I think it's pretty clear that Rove (and probably others) did a typical Washington/Nixonian hit job on Wilson and Plame. It's pretty underhanded, and Bush is in a pickle, given his obvious statements in the past, which the GOP are desperately trying to shove down the memory hole.

I find it quite interesting that the GOP and WH are as concerned as they are -- it smells very bad for them. If they truly wanted to leave it be, they would have, rather than circling the wagons on the one hand while telling McClellan to shut up on the other.

Their only move is to go even more Orwellian, as we've seen. Blame the victim, a typical rightwing strategy. It was WILSON and PLAME all along!

Pathetic. You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. As I've said, Rove, et al, may wiggle out of the legal issue, but the painfully obvious ethical issue -- the total hypocrisy of going after Wilson/Plame after an unfounded claim based on a forged document was outed in the build-up to an illegal and stupid war -- remains.
