It turns out that President Bush and Vice President Cheney really are strong on defense... Defense of their own jobs that is. Screw the troops... Screw National Security... Four more years is all that mattered to Bush and Cheney.
It turns out that Bush himself authorized the leaking of classified information to the media. Didn't he once say that if anyone in the White House was complicit in the leaking of classified information contained in the National Intelligence Estimate that also lead to the leaking of Valerie Plame's name, they would no longer be working in the White House?
Well, Mr. Bush... Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. And remember, canserve energy. Please turn out the lights before leaving.

WASHINGTON -- Vice President Dick Cheney's former top aide told prosecutors President Bush authorized the leak of sensitive intelligence information about Iraq, according to court papers filed by prosecutors in the CIA leak case.
Before his indictment, I. Lewis Libby testified to the grand jury investigating the CIA leak that Cheney told him to pass on information and that it was Bush who authorized the disclosure, the court papers say. According to the documents, the authorization led to the July 8, 2003, conversation between Libby and New York Times reporter Judith Miller.
