Republicans who bristled at the suggestion the George W. Bush White House did anything wrong in revealing the identity of a CIA operative are taking a much more aggressive tack in the furor over potential leaks in the Barack Obama White House.

Bush administration officials unmasked Valerie Plame as a CIA agent in 2003 after her husband, a U.S. ambassador, produced a report critical of their claims that Iraq was trying to get uranium from Niger, evidence that they used to build support for the Iraq war. Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, was later convicted of four counts of perjury, lying to an FBI agent, and obstructing a federal investigation for his role in the leak.

But as the Plame case unfolded, many Republicans now calling for administration heads accused Democrats of playing politics and conducting an unwarranted witch hunt. They urged at the time that Bush administration officials be given the benefit of doubt.

I'm sure both side agree that leaks are bad, but sometime the parties really need someone to look back at history and go 'he guys, umm...'.

Because I can,
also because I don't care what you want.
