President Bush told the special prosecutor in the CIA leak case that he directed Vice President Dick Cheney to personally lead an effort to counter allegations made by former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV that his administration had misrepresented intelligence information to make the case to go to war with Iraq, according to people familiar with the president’s statement.

Bush also told federal prosecutors during his June 24, 2004, interview in the Oval Office that he had directed Cheney, as part of that broader effort, to disclose highly classified intelligence information that would not only defend his administration but also discredit Wilson, the sources said.

From the Google cache, 7/7/05:

The Valerie Plame-“Saddam bought uranium in Niger” forgery scandal in the United States was part of the web of lies to justify George W. Bush’s war in Iraq with Iraq’s supposed weapons of mass destruction as its pretext.

When US ambassador Wilson unmasked the “Niger documents” as a forgery, as a revenge his wife was unmasked as a CIA agent.

A crime according to US law; by top level Bush aide Karl Rove, ambassador Wilson (who spoke about Rove “frog marched out of the White House”) and many US bloggers say.
