Scott McClellan: Bush, Cheney, Card, Rove & Libby Responsible For Plame Lie

By  | 

Yep. He’s talking out…finally.

From the book, “WHAT HAPPENED: Inside the Bush White House and What’s Wrong With Washington”:

“I stood at the White house briefing room podium in front of the glare of the klieg lights for the better part of two weeks and publicly exonerated two of the seniormost aides in the White House: Karl Rove and Scooter Libby,” McClellan wrote.

“There was one problem. It was not true.” […]

“I had unknowingly passed along false information,” McClellan wrote.

“And five of the highest ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice president, the president’s chief of staff and the president himself.”

What role they all had we don’t know yet. Maybe McClellan doesn’t know either.

I guess we’ll see when the book comes out.
