Ex CIA Officers Rip Bush

Ratfink: (noun) slang. A person regarded as contemptible, obnoxious, or otherwise undesirable.

This wonderful Associated Press article further highlights that Karl Rove should be fired. It was one of the most e-mail stories according to Yahoo News.

Former U.S. intelligence officers criticized President Bush on Friday for not disciplining Karl Rove in connection with the leak of the name of a CIA officer, saying Bush's lack of action has jeopardized national security.

"I wouldn't be here this morning if President Bush had done the one thing required of him as commander in chief — protect and defend the Constitution," said Larry Johnson, a former CIA analyst. "The minute that Valerie Plame's identity was outed, he should have delivered a strict and strong message to his employees."

Of course, Bush will never fire his loyal employee, but the heat should stay turned up on this sleazy gang of white house administrators.

Karl's free and Judith Miller continues to sit in jail. Seventeen days by my count.

I wish I could say it was only this gang currently in the white house, but I believe all politicians are less than honest.
