FLASHBACK: McClellan Said Plame Leaker Should Be Fired

CNN | September 29 2003

McClellan said that if anyone at the White House leaked Plame's identity, he should be fired, and pursued to the "fullest extent."

"No one was authorized to do this. That is simply not the way this White House operates and if someone leaked classified information it is a very serious matter," he said.

Will McClellan re-iterate his position now that his own boss, Karl Rove, has been fingered as the source?
