I've often thought that Bush would be up shit creek if he were to lose the advice of Karl Rove.


CIA seeks probe of White House
Agency asks Justice to investigate leak of employee’s identity

WASHINGTON, Sept. 26 — The CIA has asked the Justice Department to investigate allegations that the White House broke federal laws by revealing the identity of one of its undercover employees in retaliation against the woman’s husband, a former ambassador who publicly criticized President Bush’s since-discredited claim that Iraq had sought weapons-grade uranium from Africa, NBC News has learned

For those who don't know, it has long bee rumored that Karl Rove was one of the sources for the Robert Novak column that revealed Valerie Plame's role with the CIA (Plame is the wife of former ambassador Joseph Wilson, the man behind the revelations of the Niger uranium story). If this is true then Rove may have to separate himself from Bush and Bush would lose the primary force behind his political success.

Would be nice wouldn't it?

Of course, the ball is now in John Ashcroft's court. It will be interesting to see how he handles this hot potato.

Special Prosecutor time?
