Ex-CIA agent blasts White House

Secret CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson has accused senior Bush administration officials of “carelessly and recklessly” revealing her identity.
The comments were her first public statements on a political scandal which rocked Washington.
She says her identity was revealed in 2003 to discredit her husband, a former diplomat, for criticising the Iraq war.

Bush’s Book List Gets More Islamophobic

by Jim Lobe
WASHINGTON – Accounts of a Feb. 28 “literary luncheon” at the White House suggest that President George W. Bush’s reading tastes — until now a remarkably good predictor of his policy views — are moving ever rightward, even apocalyptic, despite his administration’s recent suggestions that it is more disposed to engage Washington’s foes, even in the Middle East.

“ What is remarkable about all of these books is — much like the cherry-picked and manipulated intelligence stovepiped to Bush in the run-up to the Iraq War — both their extraordinary ideological narrowness and their utility in the pursuit of a neo-conservative agenda, especially in the Middle East.”
