The President and Jim LehrerThe President was on The News Hour last night and refused to acknowledge whether or not he was aware of who leaked the name of a CIA agent to commentator Robert Novak. He said that he was not free to discuss the investigation per orders from the Special Prosecutor’s office.
Call me crazy, but I am not buying this, and I am a supporter of Dubya. He could tell the American people whether he knows what Novak says he knows, he simply chooses not to do it. There may (or may not) be some very good reasons why.
It is worth pointing out that Robert Novak is no liberal. He has no vested interest in bringing down a Republican administration.
