    While I think Ashcroft's "moral convictions" were horrible for Americans who don't share his convictions, I know plenty of people who are like him, i.e., very morally conservative. My father is one of them. My theory on Ashcroft is that he would have been more likely to be involved in whistleblowing than in flat out breaking the law by outing a CIA agent.
    I am not a fan of Ashcroft by any stretch of the imagination. But spending my entire life around true ultra-conservatives like him (rather than conservatives-for-show like Bush), I'd be willing to bet he'd get fed up with all the lies and vindictiveness.
    And I kept thinking Richard Clarke was the whistleblower, but then I did the math relating to when he resigned, etc., and it didn't add up.
    This whole Tenet theory makes sense to me, though. Made out to look like and idiot and made to be the fall guy and whipping boy for 9/11 and the faulty WMD docs, I'd say he definitely had the motive for revenge and whistleblowing.
