Nah, he just wants to fire Karl Rove...how utterly, totally predictable that the only thing that would motivate this notoriously lethargic Senator to action is a chance to score cheap political points...The contents of the letter are reproduced below (hat tip to Tim Blair):
An Open Letter to President Bush
Mr. President, despite carefully worded denials, it is now apparent that your most senior advisor discussed the identity of an undercover CIA agent with a reporter. His clear aim was to discredit that agent's husband who had dared to challenge the administration in the buildup to the war. You cannot remain silent. Fire Karl Rove.Dear President Bush,
Karl Rove, your most senior advisor, is embroiled in another controversy - this time for leaking the identity of a covert CIA agent. Despite carefully worded denials, it is now apparent that Karl Rove discussed the identity of an undercover CIA agent with a reporter. His clear aim was to discredit that agent's husband who had dared to challenge the administration in the buildup to the war.
You have a choice to make: Spend the months ahead focused on protecting Karl Rove's job security or spend them focused on protecting America's national security. You cannot remain silent.
All I'm asking is that you remain true to your word. When the scandal first broke, your spokesman, Scott McClellan, said "If anyone in this Administration was involved in it, they would no longer be in this Administration." (9/29/03, White House press briefing). What you do now, in light of Karl Rove's involvement will speak volumes.
Decency - and the interests of the American people - demand an end to Karl Rove's days in the White House. You have the choice to either make good on your promise to hold accountable those who shared the identity of a secret soldier in the war on terror - or prove that promise hollow. I call on you to keep your promise to the American people and fire Karl Rove.
Your name here
