CURRENTLY UNDER INVESTIGATION BY FEDERAL PROSECUTOR PATRICK FITZGERALD: WHO LEAKED VALERIE PLAME'S IDENTITY AS AN UNDERCOVER C.I.A. AGENT?
KARL ROVE. TLS: "Karl Rove" as Senior Advisor to the President, 1p, 8½x11. The White House, Washington, D.C., 2001 May 24. To R. Ben Benson, New Hartford, N. Y. In full: "Thanks for your kind note. Though it was not possible for the President to autograph your print. I am enclosing an autographed photo of President Bush [not included]. I know that the Administration appreciates your continued support. Thanks again." A Republican activist and dedicated conservative before he could vote, Karl Rove displayed his talent as a political planner and fundraiser while still an official of College Republicans (1971). Moving to Texas in 1977, Rove played a key role in the transformation of that state from a Democratic to a Republican bastion, aiding the election of Governor Bill Clements and Senators Phil Gramm and Kay Bailey Hutchison, among others. His greatest successes, however, have come as key advisor to George W. Bush in his successful runs for Texas Governor (1994, 1998) and U.S. President. Rove is not just a skillful tactician, however, he has helped to shape the policy agenda of the G. W. Bush Presidency and the Republican Party. (He is credited with recruiting millions of new GOP voters from the ranks of evangelical Christians.) Referred to by Bush in his 2004 victory speech as "the architect," Rove was promoted in the second term to the even more important post of Deputy Chief of Staff. Former U.S. Ambassador to Gabon Joseph C. Wilson 4th wrote an op-ed column in The New York Times on July 6, 2003, saying that he had been sent by the C.I.A. in February 2002 to investigate charges that Iraq was trying to buy uranium from the African country of Niger. Wilson said he had found no evidence to support the claim. Wilson's column was an early attack on the evidence used by the Bush administration to justify going to war in Iraq. The question Federal Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is investigating is whether someone in the Bush administration, in an effort to undermine Wilson's credibility, intentionally revealed the covert identity of Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, as an undercover C.I.A. agent. It has been alleged that Karl Rove leaked the information to Time magazine correspondent Matt Cooper. Fine condition.
