WASHINGTON

Agent's name leaked by Rove, magazine says

E-mails surrendered by Time magazine to a grand jury investigating the leak of a CIA agent's identity show that a top White House aide, Karl Rove, was one of the sources, Newsweek magazine reported Sunday.

Rove, who is President George W. Bush's deputy chief of staff, was named as a source by two lawyers involved in the case who asked not to be identified, Newsweek said.

However, an attorney for Rove told Newsweek that his client "never knowingly disclosed classified information" and that "he did not tell any reporter that Valerie Plame worked for the CIA."

Time agreed on Thursday to hand over the internal e-mails, which were largely correspondence between their editors and a reporter, Matt Cooper, along with his notes on reporting related to the case. (AFP)

He admitted to doing it genius. :rolleyes: He should be executed for treason, not just because he's an evil GOP bastard, but anyone who lets out an active CIA agent's name should be executed for treason. Just for treason they should bring back beheadings! They'd use a handsaw for it. :D

It's a Federal offense, he should be tried and sent to prison...

It's a crime to knowingly reveal the name of a CIA agent. Rove will claim he did so only by accident.

At the very worst he'll go to a softy prison and be pardoned when Bush leaves office.

The point is, he's a fucker.

You gotta know the context too, at the time Josef Wilson (CIA agent's husband) made his official report public, wich concluded that Saddam did not try to get enriched uranium from niger. That contradicted with Bush's speech at the 2004 (or 2003?) state of the union.

The media then released information according to wich Wilson's wife was a CIA agent specialized in WMD's. Wilson said this leak was a cheap shot to discredit him and take revenge.

Now we learn that it was Rove. What a fucker.

A cheap shot is one thing, putting an agents life at risk, which is what he did, is a whole other thing.

Rove is one dirty bastard...

You are obsessed with Sandy Berger.

What in the hell does it have to do with leaking the name of a CIA operative?

Feeble attempt at mis-direction number 387...

it just shows the selective moral outrage around here... as soon as someone that is right of center is accused of something, people jump all over them... when someone left of center is proven to have done something shitty and/or illegal... well nobody cares... Sandy Berger is just a fitting example.... both are intel leaks... both should be federal offences... I have yet to see VOR cut and paste an article calling into question any Liberal or Liberal group... you should really see if the LA Times is hiring... you seem to fit in with what they look for in a reporter...

Yet, you even mention the word liberal and conservatives jump all over and slamder the word so that the American people associate "liberal" with bad. Hmm... It would seem these people aren't the only ones being hypocritical...

well... I don't think that the American people associate "liberal" with "bad"... (as much as I wish they would).. I am not a hypocrite about it... I think I have been pretty consistent... I don't have a problem with liberal people... just most liberal ideology... as a whole I think they (liberal people not liberal elected officials) are warm hearted people that want to do what feels right or what is nice... they have honorable intentions... and they truely want what is best for our nation... I just think that their methods and opinions are wrong.. we want the same thing.. just have different opinions on what needs to happen to get it done...
without "liberal" there would be no "conservative"
