Petition SpotLight

Fire Rove Tell the Administration to Come Clean.

Politics drove someone to do a treacherous, potentially criminal thing: a senior administration official leaked the identity of a covert CIA operative. They endangered the agent's life and compromised our national security in a time of war.

But as it became clear this week that Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove is a subject of the criminal investigation into the leak, the second Bush administration has gone silent. And its operatives have launched a cover-up and smear campaign against anyone raising questions.

This is bigger than politics -- every American should agree that this administration needs to come clean immediately about this leak, and any White House official's role in it. The only way to pressure this administration is to show that Americans will not tolerate this -- and that every American regardless of party will unite and publicly demand that they come clean.

It's time for the White House to come clean. Any administration official who had a role in leaking the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame should step forward and explain their actions. Our national security is not a political tool.

From the Big Brass Alliance member, Rob's Blog comes news of yet another petition about Rove.   This is from the DSCC who have created the site : stop the cover-up.

Stop Karl Rove Cover Up

The media is swarming with reports that Karl Rove may have illegally leaked the identity of an undercover CIA agent to a reporter, but you wouldn't know it by listening to the "no comments" coming out of the White House.

Congressional Republicans, instead of tending to the people's business, have been distracted by the need to go into "defense mode." Instead of wasting time defending Karl Rove, Congressional Republicans ought to be standing up for what's right and demanding answers.

George Bush promised to fire anyone in his administration responsible for the leak. Now that new information suggests Rove had something to do with it, the White House has refused to answer any questions about the case. No one will even say whether the president is sticking to his promise to fire those responsible.

This is the worst kind of cover-up. It's up to us to show George Bush that the American people want answers. Sign the new DSCC petition and tell the White House to stop the cover-up today.
Mr. President,

America wants an explanation. News reports are suggesting that prominent members of your administration, including Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove, played a significant role in leaking the identity of an undercover CIA agent to a reporter.

You have said yourself that any member of your administration responsible for this leak would be fired. Yet now that we have evidence suggesting just who leaked this information to the press, your White House refuses to comment on the matter. You won't even reaffirm your promise to fire those responsible.

It's time to come clean. To restore the American people's trust, you must immediately answer two important questions:

1. Did Karl Rove or any other White House official leak the identity of an undercover CIA agent to reporters?

2. Do you stand by your promise to fire any member of your administration responsible for leaking the identity of an undercover CIA agent?

Only when these questions are fully answered, can the American people be confident that you and your administration are not playing politics with our national security. It's time to stop the cover-up.
