  1. 9-11 Failures in Security and Truth (Rutgers.edu)
      "The nation’s top-down command structure was abysmally ill-prepared to respond to the surprise attacks of September 11, 2001 and, as the bungled response to the much-anticipated Hurricane Katrina underscored, remains a bureaucratic hindrance to the “on the ground” way in which crises are actually experienced and most effectively addressed. Equally important, misleading accounts by the administration and the military of key aspects of the air and ground response on 9/11 have set the country up to fail in response to future threats."

      "The Ground Truth draws on Farmer’s experience with the 9/11 Commission as well as recently declassified tapes and transcripts to show a disturbing disconnect between what those in charge of the country’s security knew and what was actually happening on the ground and in the skies. Dean Farmer, one of the principal authors of the 9/11 Commission Report, includes critical evidence omitted in recent reports by the Departments of Defense and Transportation. The Commission, believing that civilian and military officials had not been completely forthright in their information to Congress, the media, and the Commission itself about significant aspects of 9/11, had requested the reports." 09-09

  2. Bush Lowers Ethical Standards to Keep Top Aide (Bloomberg.com)
      "President George W. Bush raised the threshold for ousting his top aide, Karl Rove, if he revealed the identity of a covert CIA agent."

      "Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is investigating based on a 1982 law that prohibits revealing the name of a covert operative knowingly and with the awareness that the government is trying to conceal the agent's identity."

      "According to an ABC News poll released yesterday, 75 percent of the 1,008 respondents questioned July 13-17 said Rove should be fired if he leaked classified information. In addition, only 25 percent of respondents said they believe the White House is fully cooperating in the investigation, down from 47 percent in September 2003, when the inquiry began." 7-05

  4. Ex-Intelligence Officers: Bush Must Act on Leak (MSNBC News)
      "President Bush is jeopardizing national security by not disciplining Karl Rove for his role in leaking the name of a CIA officer, and has hampered efforts to recruit informants in the war on terror, former U.S. intelligence officers say."

      Editor's Note: Please see "Karl Rove and Violation of National Security" below for provisions of the Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982. Also see "Plame, Valerie" for the various legal and administrative restrictions against revealing secret government information. 7-05

  7. Libby, Missing Weapons, and the Coverup (International Herald Tribune)
      "The five-count indictment handed up on Friday against I. Lewis Libby Jr., accusing the vice president's chief of staff of lying to a grand jury in the Valerie Plame case, has left a lot of questions unanswered about which government official was responsible for outing a covert Central Intelligence Agency officer after her husband questioned one of the central justifications for the war in Iraq. But its account of the lengths to which the White House went in 2003 to quash talk of faulty intelligence on Iraq still does not answer the biggest question of all: How that intelligence, most of it meager and old and some of it flat wrong, was used by the White House to justify going to war." 10-05

  8. Plame, Valerie (Wikipedia.org)
      Provides a biography of Plame, including the fact that she would have been executed if her real identity as a spy for the United States had been revealed to officials overseas while she was there.

  10. Rove Identified for Exposing Undercover Agent (Guardian Unlimited)
      "Deliberately exposing the identity of an undercover CIA agent is a serious crime. Whoever had spoken to [reporter] Novak could face up to 10 years in jail."

      "...Rove has been caught in the act. A leaked email last week from Time magazine reporter Matt Cooper said Rove told Cooper that 'Wilson's wife' worked at the CIA before Novak's column appeared."

      "While the details are confusing, the narrative is simple: the White House exposed a CIA agent working to protect America." 7-05

  11. White House: "Leakers" Will be Fired (CBS News)
      "The White House during the Bush years has characterized itself as beyond reproach. The administration has made clear any leaker found giving up the CIA agent Valerie Plame will be fired. There's no ambiguity there. No wiggle room." 7-05
