Letters to the Editor

Transparently partisan

Republican politicians are indignantly asserting that President Obama (or his minions) leaked secret intelligence to make him look good.

I have no doubt the claims are true. But I find the righteous indignation phony. Where was their similar indignation when President Bush's minions revealed the identity of a CIA spy (Valerie Plame Wilson) who had the chutzpah to tell the truth instead of baloney to support the Bush team's desire for war with Iraq?

If Diogenes searches until the end of time, he won't find an honest politician.

BRETT MENAKER, Kennewick
