Now that's a good find!
So when this President Bush's Administration sent me to Africa to investigate claims that Saddam Hussein was seeking to buy materials for weapons of mass destruction, I was ready to serve.
But I wasn't ready to keep quiet when this President misled the nation in his State of the Union Address. Because of that, leakers in the Bush White House illegally revealed that my wife worked in the CIA - endangering her life and that of my family. They tried to intimidate me and others who were willing to speak up and tell the truth.
Some people have said I was courageous to speak truth to the power of the Bush White House. But let me tell you, what I have done doesn't hold a candle to the courage that John Kerry showed as a young man and throughout his political career.
Wilson sure as hell was willing to keep quiet. Moyers and others gave him plenty of opportunities to pipe up.
Instead, he kept quiet for six months--until he got a paycheck from Kerry and the promise of some high level state department appointment (Secretary Of State?)--for his "courage."
" the disclosure that Rove served as a source for Time's Matt Cooper '
Too bad Kurtz isn't as interested in discovering the other sources Cooper admitted that he had and apparently testified about, in front of the GJ.
Cooper preferred not to discuss those sources and their waivers with Russert.
Who are Cooper's other sources ?
Are they the ones who gave Cooper Plame's name ?
Since Cooper's staying mum, they are obviously Democrats.
Which is why Kurtz and Russert have no interest.
However, to the court, the Washington Post says:
"There is ample evidence on the public record to cast considerable doubt that a crime has been committed."
They haven't fogotten. They were in it up to their eyeballs, as you point out.
