Plame Affair: Why doesn't Bush just do the right thing? 

So now journalists are risking jail to protect the administration officials who outed CIA undercover agent Valerie Plame as an act of revenge against her husband, Joseph Wilson, who caught the administration lying about Iraq.

federal judge in Washington held a reporter for Time magazine in contempt today and ordered him jailed for refusing to name the government officials who disclosed the identity of a C.I.A. agent to him. The magazine was also held in contempt and ordered to pay a fine of $1,000 a day.
(via the "see no evil" New YorkTimes)

So, rather than send some fine journalists to jail, why doesn't Bush just come clean and tell the truth all on his own? Why doesn't Bush just come out and say himself who the administration officials who outed Plame were? I can't imagine... (back).

Oh, and the guy Bush lawyered himself up with on this one has been accused (of suborning perjery (back).

But I'm sure that had nothing at all to do with Bush choosing him.
