Now that's a lede

Murray Waas makes my day in the NATIONAL JOURNAL:
President Bush told the special prosecutor in the CIA leak case that he directed Vice President Dick Cheney to personally lead an effort to counter allegations made by former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV that his administration had misrepresented intelligence information to make the case to go to war with Iraq, according to people familiar with the president's statement.

Bush told prosecutors he directed Cheney to disclose classified information that would not only defend his administration but also discredit Wilson.

Bush also told federal prosecutors during his June 24, 2004, interview in the Oval Office that he had directed Cheney, as part of that broader effort, to disclose highly classified intelligence information that would not only defend his administration but also discredit Wilson, the sources said.

I don't know if this helps Libby, but it sure doesn't help Bush.

You would think that would be enough to make someone call for accountability. Sigh....

Regan might have had a prototype teflon shield, but the one GWB has is a much more perfected model.
