President Sees Leak Case as "Very Serious"

Unlike one political officeholder who is downplaying the leak of a CIA agent's identity, or calling a possible perjury charge a "technicality" to justify a two year investigation (see post here), President Bush is recognizing the gravity of such a leak.  According to a Reuters (Yahoo News) report here President Bush called this investigation "very serious."  One assumes he finds it "very serious" because of the implications of a leak to our national security, and not because of any serious harm it may do to his administration. An administration that has called for extreme measures such as some found in the Patriot Act, would be inconsistent to then say a security leak of this nature was not important to national security.
