A court filing last week says that the president and vice president authorized the leaking of classified information by I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, who was Dick Cheney’s chief of staff. The White House doesn’t deny this, but it also refuses to elaborate. This looks bad for President Bush, and even supporters can see that he needs to come forward. “This is a very significant disclosure. This is big. They owe all of us an explanation, all of us who trust him, and they owe the American people an explanation,” said U.S. Rep. Ray LaHood, a respected Republican from Illinois.
