Will Karl Rove be indicted this week by the federal grand jury investigating the Bush administration leak that outed covert CIA operative Valerie Plame? Depends on who you read and believe.
With the glib-talking Tony Snow on board, the White House has stepped up its war against the press.
U.S. Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden’s chances of winning Senate confirmation to head the CIA depend on how he explains his involvement in eavesdropping and data collection programs, two key senators said on Sunday.
The U.S. prosecutor in the CIA leak case has told a court he plans to use as evidence a newspaper article with notes that he says were hand-written by Vice President Dick Cheney referring to Valerie Plame shortly before she was exposed as a CIA operative.
Why would an organization that calls itself the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People, whose motto is “Making Democracy Work Since
1909,” oppose individual choice and freedom and dedicate itself to promoting
public policy that guarantees the perpetuation of black poverty?
A $70 billion exercise in fiscal cynicism is about to hit President Bush’s
desk that he will happily sign as one of the signal achievements of his
presidency. Whoever is in the White House and Congress in 2010 to pick up the
pieces and pay the bills may not think so.
Americans are bored with Bush and scared that he’s
incompetent in a dangerous age when America’s reputation and ideals are waning.
Many Republicans, astounded at the mounting debt he is piling up for future
generations and the little it has bought (think tax relief for the very rich),
fear he’s lost his conservative moorings.
