Bush Hates Leakers ... Not If Your One of His Own

Not surprisingly, Bush has backed down from his strong statements about despising leaks in Washington. The standard for punishing leakers that help him, even ones harming national security, has been shifted. There will be no investigations by this White House and you will only be held accountable if somehow an independent prosecutor gets through and you somehow get convicted under the highest of burdens of proof that apply to criminal prosecutions.

Simply put, Bush won't protect national security until after proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

What this shows is that there is no accountability from this President for wrongdoing so long as that wrongdoing benefits him. Political gain is more highly valued than national security.
