Here’s a snippet from her email response (I hope it’s okay to post these):
There has never been a more important
time for U.S. intelligence agents to be able to
do their work unimpeded; the threats posed by
terrorists are simply too great. Our national
security requires that we protect the identity
of undercover agents, and that sacred
responsibility clearly is more important than
personal relationships or political posturing.
She also outline what she has been doing regarding this, which has been reported in the news. That is, sending a letter to Bush, along with her colleagues in the Senate, asking for Rove’s resignation.
I’m glad they got back to me. That makes me feel better.
Here is a snippet of her letter to me:
I am deeply disturbed by the possibility that someone with
access to classified information could be involved in leaking it for
political purposes. If in fact Karl Rove was engaged in such
conduct I would hope the Administration would take decisive
action. I cannot comment on whether he should be prosecuted, but
clearly this conduct should not be condoned or ignored. The
President has clearly said that if anybody leaked information they
would be fired. I would hope that he would keep his word.
That’s cool. It’s nice to know that she actually read my e-mail because she responded directly to a comment that I made.
