More Rove-ian Knights

Should Rove stay or go?

Its actually pretty easy to answer: It depends.

It looks pretty clearly as if he did leak this information, and intentionally so from the scattered info I've read, to the news. Why he did so is of course open for debate, but that it was done is not in question at all. If he did do so, he needs to be removed swiftly from office. His 'alleged' leak is dangerous, and destructive to US intelligence gathering ability. While I could go on, and on, and on about the potential risk to the life of Plame and her family, that is almost secondary, and has been done before by others with bigger axes to grind. Outing an operative, for whatever reason, is clearly criminal. It risks the life of someone every bit as expensively trained as one of our frontline troops, and every bit as vitally needed to protect American lives.

If on the other hand he's not actually guilty, and this is simply another "Rathergate", let the man get back to pulling Pinocchio's strings.

As far as I can tell he didn't out Plame just talked down Wilson and mentioned he had a wife. No secret or even confidential info given out at all. Mostly stuff available on the society page and local gossip columns.
