Does he or doesn't he?

Well, conservative CNN commentator Robert Novak is claiming that President Bush should know the identity of the person who leaked CIA agent Valerie Plame's name to him.

Novak said that "I'd be amazed" if the president didn't know the source's identity and that the public should "bug the president as to whether he should reveal who the source is."

And now Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) is requesting that the President reveal what he knows.

"You are in a position to clear this matter up quickly," Schumer said in a letter to the president on Wednesday.

"Unlike Mr. Novak, who can claim an interest in maintaining the confidentiality of his sources, there is no similar privilege arguably preventing you from sharing this information," Schumer wrote.

"You have repeatedly suggested that you would like to get to the bottom of this affair," Schumer reminded Bush. "At one point, in 2004, you suggested that anyone who was involved in leaking the name of the covert CIA operative would be fired."

Senator Schumer makes a good point. If Bush knows who the culprit is, then why hasn't he fired him by now? He said that anyone involved would be sacked. More of the same lies and hypocrisy, I guess. We all should be used to it by now. It's really all we ever get from this administration.

I suppose it's a bit like Dracula accusing Frankenstein, but in this case I believe Dracula. I'm sure Bush has known all along and he is what is: a lying sack of shit. As you say, so what's new?

Yeah, definitely two evils, and I'm not sure if either one of them truly is any the lesser. The dark side is the dark side, after all.
