Dean: Rove Actions 'Both Unpatriotic and Wrong'

"At his keynote address to the Republican National Committee Winter Meeting in Washington, D.C. today, controversial White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove once again launched irresponsible, partisan attacks at Democrats.

DNC Chairman Howard Dean pointed out that Rove personally damaged America's national security by revealing the identity of an undercover CIA operative and renewed his call for President Bush to keep his promise to fire his closest adviser:

"Karl Rove only has a White House job and a security clearance because President Bush has refused to keep his promise to fire anyone involved in revealing the identity of an undercover CIA operative," said Dean. "Rove's political standing gets him an invitation to address Republicans in Washington, DC today, but it doesn't give him the credibility to question Democrats' commitment to national security. The truth is, Karl Rove breached our national security for partisan gain and that is both unpatriotic and wrong."-from the DNC.
