Bush Knew Rove Outed Plame From Day One
Bush's Texas license number is 0001 because he was arrested so many times, he had to hide his record.

The spin machine in the White House spins faster than Hurricane Wilma. For two years, Bush himself tired to appear "out of the loop" as per usual Bush family tradition but then in an attempt to appear in control, he has the story peddled that he chided Rove in 2003 for outing Plame. Remember, he claimed he would fire Rove if he particapated in this illegal action.
Democrats asked the White House on Wednesday for details of President George W. Bush's private conversations in 2003 with top political adviser Karl Rove after conflicting reports about whether Bush was aware of any role by Rove in the outing of a covert CIA operative.Because they lie all the time, they are now under a microscope and so they tell one lie after another hoping one of the lies will stick and undo all the previous damage caused by previous lies.
The Daily News account appeared to contradict assertions earlier this month by sources close to the case that Rove had kept his role from Bush, assuring him in a brief conversation in the fall of 2003 that he was not involved in any effort to punish Wilson by disclosing his wife's identity.
The Daily News said those earlier reports implying Rove had deceived Bush about his involvement in the Wilson counterattack were incorrect and were leaked by White House aides trying to protect the president.
Bush Sr. famously did this during the Iran/Contra hearings. He pretened he was "out of the loop" and didn't know what was going on. This infuriated me back then because Bush Sr. was once the head of the CIA. And in this mess, guess who has total access to CIA personnel files? The main CIA building is called "the Bush building" so just take a wild guess who knows what there.
The media pushed the "Bush is snoring at the wheel" story until Bush lost the election and forgave his fellow plotters so we never learned the whole truth because none of them were put in prison properly. We did hear a lot about the Nixon crimes because his buddies did hard time.
Ken Starr put innocent people in prison to make them tell tales about Clinton. This backfired when they didn't give him anything to indite Clinton on so they went ahead and impeached him over a dress stain. Well. Do we hear yells to impeach from the Republicans today?
According to all reports, Bush didn't know about Plame, didn't know who spread the stories about her and he said he would FIRE anyone if he found out they did it and guess who has access to all state secrets even today?
Rove! And now Bush admits he not only isn't firing him, he knew from day one that Rove did it and chided him, oh, yes! Got real mad. Hahaha. Gave him more power and goodies like being in charge of all that Katrina loot. Some punishment.
So, Bush lied about his ignorance. He is lying now about his getting mad at Rove.
He wants to have his Plame and eat her too.
