Missouri’s top man on a Congressional intelligence committee, Senator Bond, weighs in on a flap involving an intelligence agent and the president’s top political advisor. The person many people consider President Bush’s right-hand man has landed himself in the middle of a political pickle. Karl Rove is being accused of leaking the name of a C-I-A agent to a reporter. A grand jury is investigating to see if criminal charges should be brought in the case. Senator Bond says more facts need to be gathered before passing judgment on Rove. When pressed whether or not Rove should be fired should the accusations that Rove disclosed the name of a C-I-A operative be true, Bond still defended his fellow Republican’s top political advisor. Last year, President Bush had promised to fire anyone in his White House who leaked the name of a C-I-A agent.
