This issue is currently under investigation. Dunning everyone under the sun to come down on this issue, one way or the other, is idiotic. McCain is
no idiot. He knows that regardless of what he thinks, a ruling will be made and then we can all go ballistic, as some are wont to do. Negligence is
an act of omission. If Rove didn't know the information was classified, I don't think there's negligence on his part. There might be negligence
on the part of someone, but not necessarily him. So far, I haven't heard a word about this from the CIA, but as I understand it, in order for a
crime to have been committed the CIA would have been required to be actively concealing the identity of the person in question. I think a lot of this
is going to boil down to that.
But, of course, the Rove/Bush haters will not be able to let due process run its course. That would take prudence and a sense of justice.
