I don’t know who leaked the information, for starters. So it’s hard for me to answer that question until I find out the truth. – George W. Bush, October 6, 2003
Umm…guess we know what the truth is now. Bush is a liar.
My crackpot theory is that Bush ordered the leak and then declassified it after the fact to cover his ass. They’d rather deal with this issue than that.
