Bubble Boy's Don't Ask/Can't Tell Policy -- INVESTIGATING CIA LEAK BY DOING NOTHING

ZERO. Squat. Bupkus. Nada. Nothing. Niente. Zip.

QUESTION: What did the White House do to investigate Rove's role in the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame?

WaPo here.
NEW YORK Dr. James Knodell, director of the Office of Security at the White House, told a congressional committee today that he was aware of no internal investigation or report into the leak of covert CIA agent Valerie Plame.

The White House had first opposed Knodell testifying but after a threat of a subpoena from the committee yesterday he was allowed to appear today.

Knodell said that he had started at the White House in August 2004, a year after the leak, but his records show no evidence of a probe or report there: "I have no knowledge of any investigation in my office," he said.

Rep. Waxman recalled that President Bush had promised a full internal probe. Knodell repeated that no probe took place, as far as he knew, and was not happening today.

As strange as this strikes me, I'm gonna quote myself on this from the other day.

You know, it doesn't take a Ph, D. to figure out why Chimpy never even tried to figure out how many people on his staff may have been involved with outing a covert CIA agent (and presumably getting at least some of her contacts killed in the process.) Chimpy never looked for the answers because he undoubtedly either already has the answers, or was told by those who do his thinking for him to not worry about it.

Of course, this is nothing that anyone except for the Chimpletons doesn't realize already.
