Cheney should resign if Libby is right

No, not because of that whole shooting business over the weekend. Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, Scooter Libby, has reportedly told a grand jury that the vice president authorized the release of CIA officer Valerie Plame's classified identity in 2003. DNC Chairman
Howard Dean called on the veep to step aside if this is the case.

"If Vice President Cheney has, in fact, ordered the leaking of political information -- of intelligence information, that means he has to step aside," Dean said on CNN. "We don't know if it's true, but he has been accused of it. If it's true, he has to step aside."

On Sunday, Democratic and Republican senators said Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald should investigate Cheney and others in the CIA leak probe if they authorized Libby to give secret information to reporters.

Now there are reports that Valerie Plame was spying on Iran's nuclear program, which makes her outing particularly damaging to national interests. This is not good.
