Absolutely no shame, no remorse, no public pangs of conscience…and none expected:
Karl Rove, deputy chief of staff to former President George W. Bush, spoke last week at Loyola Marymount University as part of a campuswide 1st Amendment Week. In his remarks, he reiterated his belief that government leaks can cause serious harm, and that newspapers should respect government secrecy….
"Secrecy and confidentiality are necessary for every government, especially when you’re at war."…
"I love how the last eight years, this White House, the Bush White House, was criticized for being tight-lipped. We didn’t leak."
I beg to differ.
And I’m guessing Valerie Plame Wilson and her family, the CIA and a whole host of assets around the world would as well. Jackass.
