Rove's Departure Tied to Iran Attack - Ray McGovern
Karl Rove's announced departure from the White House came as a surprise. The architect of the Bush presidency and acclaimed Republican strategist will step down at the end of this month "to spend more time with his family". The timing is interesting and there has been speculation as to his real reasons for leaving.
In a recent piece on Alternet by former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, he writes that one of his associates at VIPS (Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity), Phil Geraldi, believes Rove's resignation has to do with a disagreement over the planned upcoming strike against Iran.In short, it seems possible that Rove, who is no one's dummy and would not want to be required to "spin" an unnecessary war on Iran, may have lost the battle with Cheney over the merits of a military strike on Iran, and only then decided -- or was urged -- to spend more time with his family.
Go read the whole thing. It is laid out for all to see.
