WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush authorized the leak to the media of classified material about Iraq, a former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney said according to court papers filed by prosecutors and made public on Thursday.Wow. Conspiracy theory proven correct. What the hell am I supposed to think about that?
The aide, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, also testified that he was specifically directed by Cheney to speak to the media about the intelligence information and about Joseph Wilson, a former ambassador who had criticized Bush's Iraq policy, according to the papers.
Oh, yeah - that someone very powerful is a petty, vindictive, immature man who was willing to destroy someone's career in order to get "revenge".
