From the Post-Gazette:
Specter urges Bush to come forward about Iraq data leak

WASHINGTON -- President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney need to explain what classified information was authorized to be leaked to reporters in July 2003 and why, Sen. Arlen Specter said yesterday.

"I think that there has to be a detailed explanation precisely as to what Vice President Cheney did, what the president said to him, and an explanation from the president as to what he said so that it can be evaluated," Mr. Specter, R-Pa., the Judiciary Committee chairman, said of last week's revelation in a court document that Mr. Cheney's former chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, testified that Mr. Cheney told him Mr. Bush approved leaking parts of a classified document about intelligence estimates of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.
Arlen will hold all kinds of hearings, but what do they ever amount to? (Besides a silver bullet theory...)
