The American Spectator: "Armitage's leak was not innocent, idle chatter. And worse, much worse, was his cravenness in not telling the truth to the president he supposedly served. Armitage told Powell on October 1, 2003. If he felt his loyalty to Powell required him to call his boss on that date, he had a greater loyalty to tell the president before the sun set that day. The facts that neither he nor Powell told the president, that both allowed the Democrats and the media to damage the Bush administration for almost three years afterward and let Scooter Libby's life to be ruined, disqualifies both Armitage and Powell from ever holding public office again. Let them retire in the ignominy they deserve."UPDATE: [Rick Ballard] Clarice Feldman adds perspective to Babbin's outrage in this American Thinker piece. After the election it's my hope that Sensenbrenner convenes hearings to look into Comey's decision to appoint Fitzgerald. Nobody elected these mandarins to make US policy and a few of them could stand some time in stony lonesome to drive that point home.
