Snowball Rolling

Another disgruntled former Bush staffer, or the truth finally being heard:
McClellan recounts the 2003 news conference in which he told reporters that aides Karl Rove and I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby were "not involved" in the leak involving operative Valerie Plame.

"There was one problem. It was not true," McClellan writes, according to a brief excerpt released Tuesday. "I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest-ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice president, the president's chief of staff and the president himself.
The Right will whine, but when you think of what they put Clinton through during his 2nd term, they were the ones who set the rules. With the exception of the threat of the nuclear option in the Senate, the Right took advantage of every other opportunity they had to wreak havoc on the process, without consideration for the needs of their constituencies. I am not a fan of constant and frivolous investigation to score political points through negative politics. But in this case we may have some very serious manipulation reaching to the highest levels of government. A far cry from a stained dress between consenting adults.

I think it is time we get McClellan under oath, and see where that takes us. the Right will complain, because they seem to be allergic to the truth.
