Is it a leak if it's authorized?

I'd say no, but Howard Kurtz and the rest of the press seem to think it's Watergate. Their spin is that he released classified information for political reasons, just when Joe Wilson's Big Lie about Niger, yellowcake and Iraq was gaining traction. So telling the truth is now a dirty political trick? Why aren't they jumping on Joe?

What are they so fried about? The president told the world about this in his State of the Union Address in 2002 and liberals have been repeating that it was a lie ever since. When the NIE says otherwise, they act like the White House, not them, was the liar. So much for pursuing the truth.

Bush is first criticized for being too "secretive" and not "transparent" enough, so when he authorizes a leak, he's releasing "classified" information for political purposes. Maybe we should quit listening to the press. They're just too political these days.
