Some United States Senators, Republican and Democrat alike, are saying that Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald should investigate Dick Cheney and other senior White House officials if they authorized former Cheney Chief of Staff Scooter Libby to leak classified information.
Republicans like George Allen (R-VA) are being forced to realize what many of us in the reality based community have known for a long time: the Bush Administration is a criminal one.
Sen. Allen said a full investigation in warranted, and that "I don't think anybody should be releasing classified information, period, whether in the Congress, executive branch or some underling in some bureaucracy."
Last week, released court documents revealed that Libby told the Grand Jury in the CIA leak case, that Dick Cheney and other "superiors" in the White House authorized him to disclose classified material, including a National Intelligence Estimate.
