Here's what Harry Reid's got to say about Scooter's indictment:
These are very serious charges. They suggest that a senior White House aide put politics ahead of our national security and the rule of law.
To tie Valery Plame to national security is practically indictable in itself.
This case is bigger than the leak of highly classified information. It is about how the Bush White House manufactured and manipulated intelligence in order to bolster its case for the war in Iraq and to discredit anyone who dared to challenge the president.
No. It's about how the Bush White House attempted to get the truth to the media, so reporters would understand that Wilson was peddling manufactured and manipulated stories. If Wilson hadn't been manipulating the story for his own agenda, there would have been no reason for Scoot to call anyone in the media.
It's now time for President Bush to lead and answer the very serious questions raised by this investigation. The American people have already paid too steep a price as a result of misconduct at the White House, and they deserve better.”
What serious questions? A year of digging and all they get is an aide to the VP? If Reid can point to a nickle of cost -- beyond what we've paid for Fitzgerald's investigation -- I'd be amazed. And don't say the cost was going to war in Iraq. We did not go to war with Iraq over yellowcake.
