  •  Confirmation (none)
    Also, the standard reply when asked to comment on something that is classified is to say something to the form of "I can neither confirm nor deny..."  I think it was Rove's lawyer (sketchy memory there) who said Rove responded with "I've heard that" to a question about Plame/CIA being involved, defintely a form of confirmation.

    You don't get off free if you do the ol' "don't hang up for 15 seconds if Plame is a CIA agent" routine.

    Great point about Sandy Berger.  I was thinking the same thing myself.  Those sleezebag repubs went after him full out for a very minor security lapse.

    •  Nope (none)
      You are not suppose to even address it. "I don't know what you aare talking about," and change the subject. THEN, you are suppose to report the breach to the appropriate authorities.
