    But let's say that he did leak information before the 2004 Miscarriage of Sanity. We'd have unsubstantiated rumors--because Fitzgerald couldn't exactly get on TV and confirm them--that members of the BC administration may have participated in a crime. That's all they'd be. Rumors. Rumors that possibly, maybe, would get airtime on the news networks that were dutifully fellating Chimpy; the networks that, instead of pointing out the truth behind the TANG memo, took the opportunity to point and laugh at Rather; the networks that clearly directed their energies to sliming Kerry's service record rather than digging into the facts about Bush's.

    And Fitzgerald was supposed to risk, if not blow up, his own case, for the possibility some leaks would get airplay?
