  • While I can't say whether Rove broke any laws, clearly something happened that has spurred a serious federal investigation. I was only an enlisted man in Army Intelligence between '84 and '92, but there were serious penalties for revealing anything classified. In fact, I think part of the problem here is that much of the information that would shed light on what laws have been broken could in itself be classified. From my experience, it would be beyond belief that laws weren't broken in revealing Plame as a CIA employee working on WMD without prior approval from the CIA. Maybe because of her status at the time this information was revealed that specific laws such as the "Intelligence Identities Protection Act" were not violated. But I consider it highly probable that other laws were broken. It'll be interesting to see if we ever get any good public information as to what happened and who did it.
    • No doubt something happened ... else why spend 20+ months on a grand jury investigation? And maybe even Rove was intimately and criminally involved. I only know that the facts as we now know them don't support the claim that Rove did anything seriously wrong, let alone committed a crime.

      I certainly want to know what happened, and want whoever broke the law to be punished.
