Crumbling Edifice

"Scooter" Libby has apparently stated that the authorization to reveal classified information to reporters came from George Bush. Story

If true, this paints a very damning picture of the President and his administration. The "national security" President violating security for political purposes? Going against his own stated distaste for "leakers"?

This administration has to be the most bipolar in the nation's history. One moment they're doing stuff like quietly working behind the scenes to free a kidnapped reporter, the next moment they're leaking classified information for a transient political advantage.

Shades of Bill Clinton and his rudderless government-by-opinion-poll. Is the true nature of the Bush administration nothing more than grasping, opportunistic indulgence?

As so many times in the past, tho, I reserve judgement until more information surfaces. It's entirely possible that Libby is trying to save his own bacon at the expense of everyone else.
