Bush said to have cleared Iraq leak - Yahoo! News
"A former top White House aide testified that President George W. Bush authorized leaking classified intelligence in 2003 in the face of criticism of his Iraq policy from a former ambassador, according to court papers made public on Thursday.
Democrats seized on the news, accusing Bush of hypocrisy. The president has often denounced leaks from his administration and vowed to punish the leakers. This was the first time Bush was directly linked to this incident.
'If the disclosure is true, it's breathtaking. The president is revealed as the leaker-in-chief,' said Rep. Jane Harman (news, bio, voting record) of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee."
