It hasn't even been established that Bush "leaked" anything.

I'm surprised this guy was just fired and not arrested. Maybe that's coming.

No similarity at all

This was a guy shooting his mouth off to the press; he isn't tied to anyone who is tied to Bush, other than being a government employee.

There's so much he deserves to be blamed FOR, Evie.

Destroying our respect in the world, costing the country over a quarter trillion dollars and 2200 soldiers (KIA only), further destabilizing the Middle East, mishandling both North Korea and Iran and so increasing the likelihood of nuclear proliferation -- just for starters (Odd how folks get upset at being labeled part of an "Axis of Evil" when you invade the other member of that small club...) And then there's the fruits of his anti-oil conservation efforts, just now being seen. His Adminsitration is the most secrecy-conscious since Nixon's because there's so much he needs to keep secret lest the American people and the world be ven further enraged at him!

Amazing statement by Washington Post...

In reply to: CIA

LINK

Post Executive Editor Leonard Downie Jr. said on the newspaper's Web site, "We don't know the details of why (the CIA employee) was fired, so I can't comment on that. But as a general principle, obviously I am opposed to criminalizing the dissemination of government information to the press."

In other words, to hell with the law or National Security.

Arrest the CIA operative AND the journalist

In reply to: CIA fires employee for alleged leak

I'd say that knowingly publishing confidential material in the press should count as treason. By doing so, you're making the material available to everyone, including enemies of the state that the information focuses on.
Try them both for treason I'd say.
Or we can just wait until some leak directly costs the lives of US servicemen and operatives abroad.

In reply to: Arrest the CIA operative AND the journalist

... Priest's piece, it seems as obvious as it can get that she KNEW she was revealing information that did NOT belong in the public domain. She should be prosecuted as well.

What'd he say? what'd he mean?

In reply to: CIA fires employee for alleged leak

"If there's a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is,"

First, it has to qualify as a "leak", and the President just says that he "wants to know". That's all, just wants to know.

"If the person has violated law, that person will be taken care of."

IF the person has violated the law, This implies there could be a trial, (or they could be just taken care of, laid off, fired, promoted, demoted, disappeared) it doesn't say the person that leaked would be charged.

'I want to know the truth,' president tells reporters
