Bush's aids under fire

Aha, finaly the "grey house" feels the heat. I hope Dick Cheney and Karl Rove will be next. And Bush looks bleeker than ever. This is not a "second term blues", this is a turning point.
The top aide to the US vice-president has resigned after being charged with perjury over an investigation into the unmasking of a covert CIA agent. Lewis Libby, chief-of-staff to Dick Cheney, was charged with obstruction of justice and making false statements to the federal grand jury.
Bush aide Karl Rove was not charged but the investigation has not been closed.
The identity of CIA agent Valerie Plame - whose husband criticised the Iraq war - was leaked to a US reporter in 2003. Revealing the identity of a covert agent is a federal offence.
