Well, there you have it…another Karl Rove engineered leak. This article: (Truthout) Karl Rove Indicted on Charges of Perjury, Lying to Investigators was the talk of the blogosphere a month ago. Everyone kept waiting and waiting for Rove to finally get a comuppance, but as more and more time went by, the less likely it looked that it would happen. Now it’s official. Whenever there’s a leak regarding Karl Rove, the safest assumption is that the source of the leak is Karl himself and the question always is, what strategem is he playing? This time, I think he was trying to force the issue of indictment or non-indictment. If indictment, then he could operate without the THREAT of indictment over his head. If non-indictment, he could spin it so he would appear truthful. In fact, that’s exactly how Pete Yost (AP Analysis: Telling FBI the Truth Saved Rove) is reporting it. We here at HAIL DUBYUS! were dubious about the indictment story to start with. In the meantime, El Presidente zipped into Baghdad, told the puppet al-Maliki we were standing behind him, took a few photos and zipped out again. If you blinked, you missed it.
