The mysterious source who gave America’s foremost journalist, Bob Woodward, a tip-off about the CIA agent at the centre of one of Washington’s biggest political storms was Stephen Hadley, the White House national security adviser, according to lawyers close to the investigation…
…A spokeswoman for the National Security Council (NSC) denied that Hadley was the journalist’s source. However, in South Korea on Friday during an official visit with President George W Bush, Hadley dodged the question.
“I’ve also seen press reports from White House officials saying that I am not one of his sources,” Hadley said with a smile. Asked if this was a yes or no he replied: “It is what it is.”
Where did Hadley see those reports, the New York Times?
It is what it is. Brother. I think we all know what it is, and it ain't chocolate ice cream.
I lament once again that our nation's senior officers consistently get away with outrageous prevarications that we wouldn't tolerate from our children.
