So the talking points are out. The president has the authority to declassify information, as does the vice president. Cheney conveniently revealed this a month ago, when it became evident that Libby was going to squeal.

OK. I'll give the White House that. The president didn't break the law, and I apologise for implying as much in a previous post.

One question: If the president thought it was so important to get this information out, why didn't he just hold a press conference? All he had to say was: "Here's the previously classified intelligence showing that Saddam really is trying to get nukes from Libya, and oh, by the way, the wife of the guy who says I'm lying is a CIA agent."
