...Examine Possible Presidential Crimes Around Iraq War ~ Interview with John Bonifaz, constitutional attorney, conducted by Between the the Lines' Scott Harris
As CIA Leak Investigation Concludes, Critics Say Probe Should Examine Possible Presidential Crimes Around Iraq War
Interview with John Bonifaz, constitutional attorney, conducted by Scott Harris
The federal probe into who in the White House leaked the identity of a covert CIA agent to news reporters is drawing to a close. During his investigation, special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald questioned President Bush's senior advisor Karl Rove four times, confirming, despite early public denials, that he was at least one of those in the White House who revealed the identity of the CIA officer. Fitzgerald also succeeded in pressuring reluctant Time reporter Matt Cooper and the New York Times' Judith Miller to testify before the grand jury hearing the case. Although Miller initially refused to testify, and was jailed on contempt charges for 85 days, she recently changed her mind and made a deal with Fitzgerald to be released after agreeing to speak before the grand jury.
In Miller's own account of her testimony published in the Times, she confirms -- as did with Cooper -- that Lewis "Scooter" Libby, a senior adviser to Vice President Cheney, was a source from whom she had received information about the identity of undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame. Plame is the wife of former U.S. ambassador Joseph Wilson who had publicly debunked President Bush 's pre-war declaration that Saddam Hussein was attempting to obtain uranium from the African nation of Niger for an Iraqi nuclear weapons program.
As the nation awaits the conclusion of Fitzgerald's case, which could end in the indictment of Rove or Libby on charges of violating the espionage act or perjury, more important aspects of this affair are being overlooked by much of the corporate media. Central to the case is the Bush administration's use of dubious evidence to justify the Iraq war. The subsequent outing of CIA agent Plame appears to have been part of a larger White House effort to silence and punish the president's critics. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with John Bonifaz, constitutional attorney and co-founder of the group Afterdowningstreet.org, who explains why he believes this investigation must be broadened to include the false pretext under which the nation went to war with Iraq, and the impeachable offenses that may have been committed by President Bush.
