a pending pardon?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

This PBS article (h/t: Joe Sudbay at AmericaBlog) mentions two statements Bush made previously about the then-publicly-unidentified leaker in his administration. Bush said the following in September 2003:

There are too many leaks of classified information in Washington. And if there is a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is. And if the person has violated law, the person will be taken care of...

In June 2004, a reported asked Bush "[D]o you stand by your pledge to fire anyone found to have [who leaked the agent's name]?" and Bush responded, "Yes. And that's up to the U.S. Attorney to find the facts."

I suspect that Libby-the-Leaker will be pardoned, to avoiding the possibility that he'll flip in prison and finger "Big Dick" Cheney as the mastermind.
