leak leak

Guess it's a good thing that de facto Secretary of State Rice denies (through a spokesman) leaking national defense related information to AIPAC lobbyists. Because if she denies it, surely it's true. After all, we wouldn't want her to be fired like that professional at the CIA was.

But of course, even if Condi HAD leaked, it was quite different I'm sure. After all, the CIA person probably had malicious thoughts in mind about exposing criminal activity within the US government. Exposing wrongdoing is just plain wrong. But if you leak classified information with the intent of advancing a partisan political effort -- you know, the way the White House has to smear Joe Wilson's wife -- well, that's OK. Karl Rove says it is.
