Corruption in Bush Administration: Libby told to Leak Information

Lewis “Scooter” Libby, VP Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, told a grand jury today that the leaks he made were authorized by his boss, Cheney. The White House refused to comment.

Libby is charged with leaking to the media reports that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. The leaking of these reports greatly eased Bush’s difficulties in convincing the government and the American populace to go to war in Iraq, and to date Bush has claimed he had nothing to do with the leak. The authorization of these leaks by Cheney, if substantiated, would bring the investigation to the highest point on the totem pole it has reached to date.

Take note that a week and a half ago, January 31st, George Bush gave his State of the Union. At the time, she wore a shirt which said “2,245 dead”. Today, that number has increased by 20, making 2 deaths a day. Would we be experiencing that had this report not been released? Maybe I’m just too anti-Bush, to a fault, it is certainly possible. But doesn’t there come a point where we have to question our leaders, and ask if they are working in our best interest? Because I’m not sure George Bush is.
