Finally, someone with a backbone.
Now, we're getting somewhere!
"I think it is necessary for the president and vice president to tell the American people exactly what happened," Specter told "Fox News Sunday."
"There's been enough of a showing that the president of the United States owes a specific explanation to the American people … about exactly what he did," Specter said.

Sen. John Kerry, the Massachusetts Democrat who ran against Bush for president in 2004, said it was wrong for Bush to declassify information selectively "in order to buttress phony arguments to go to war " and to attack people politically. [That's putting it mildly]
"This was not a declassification in order to really educate America. This was a declassification in order to mislead America," Kerry said on "Meet the Press" on NBC. "I think it's a disgrace." [That's more like it]

"It seems to me that first and foremost, the White House needs to come clean on this matter," Wilson said on ABC's "This Week."

"There has to be a detailed explanation as to precisely what Vice President Cheney did, what the president said to him and an explanation by the president as to what he said," Specter said.
