If Karl Rove did what he says he didn’t do, he deserves a medal from America according to John Gibson’s “My Word”. Secret spymasters such as Valerie Plame should not be hiding out in the CIA to engage in nepotism and interference in the goals of the President. She should have outed herself, but she did not, so whoever did, deserves the gratitude of the people and the taxpayers who were taken for chumps by her and her husband.
“I say give Karl Rove a medal, even if Bush has to fire him. Why? Because Valerie Plame should have been outed by somebody. And if nobody else had the cojones to do it, I’m glad Rove did — if he did do it, and he still says he didn’t.
“So why should Rove get a medal?
“Let’s just assume that spy Valerie Plame knew her husband’s attitudes about the war in Iraq and George W. Bush’s policies. Sending him off to Niger could be regarded as an attempt to influence national policies. Where I come from, we want to know who that is. We do not want secret spymasters pulling the puppet strings in the background. That is something that should be out in the open and the person doing it should own up to it. Rove should get a medal — if he did what he says he didn’t.”
