Much ado about nothing [link]

The main stream media is all abuzz about the news that President Bush may have authorized Libby Lewis to reveal information from a (subsequently declassified) national intelligence estimate back in 2003. Of course, the MSM wants us to equate the authorized release of formerly classified information with the leaking of Valerie Plame's name.

What was happening? Well, what the MSM won't tell us is that the White House was endeavoring to respond to Joe Wilson's lies about his Niger mission. The Administration authorized the release of accurate information in an effort to block the spread of Joe Wilson's lies.

But now the MSM, with a little careful word juxtaposition, is accusing President Bush of being a hypocrite...saying that he opposed the leaking of classified material when he was authorizing leaks that would benefit him. There is a difference between a "leak" and an authorized release of information...a difference that the MSM wants us to ignore.

Well, thank heavens for the blogosphere. At least SOME people will have a chance to see the truth.
