A Cautious Man

Well It Ain't No Secret
In the news today -
President George W. Bush authorized Vice President Dick Cheney in July 2003 to permit Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis Libby Jr., to leak to a reporter key portions of a classified prewar intelligence estimate on Iraq, according to Libby's grand jury testimony disclosed in court papers.

The court filing late Wednesday provided the first indication that Bush, who has long assailed leaks of classified information as a national security threat, played a direct role in the disclosure of the intelligence report on Iraq and also was involved in the swirl of events leading to the disclosure of the identity of an undercover CIA officer.

This calls for a variation of my favorite movie line -
"I'm shocked, shocked to find that leaking is going on in here!"
