Ex-intelligence officials want Rove's security clearance suspended, 11/15/05

Sixteen former CIA and military intelligence officials on Tuesday urged President Bush to suspend his top political adviser Karl Roves security clearance following revelations that he played a role in outing CIA officer Valerie Plame. We are asking that you immediately suspend the clearances of all White House personnel who spoke to reporters about (Plames) affiliation with the CIA. They have mishandled classified information and no longer deserve the level of trust required to have access to this nations secrets, the former officials, some of whom were covert operatives, wrote Bush.
