Chimpy’s Deputy National Security Advisor, on the job for two short years, steps down. Could his cell phone number be among those turned over to ABC News by “DC Madame”Deborah Jeane Palfrey? I have no idea, but at this stage you have to wonder.
Public support for the Iraq war is low. Lawmakers are battling the White House over money to pay for the combat. Suicide bombings continue in Baghdad.
Despite it all, J.D. Crouch, who is stepping down from his national security post at the White House, is confident history will prove that invading Iraq was the right thing to do.
Crouch, 48, said he’s been thinking for months about leaving his job as deputy to the president’s national security adviser, Stephen Hadley. In announcing his resignation on Friday, Bush said Crouch has been “at the forefront in devising and implementing the new strategy to help build a peaceful, stable and secure Iraq.”
Here’s a photo of Crouch, standing between Dick Cheney and Stephen Hadley.
Funny how Crouch’s resignation was announced on the very day Palfrey’s recrods will be revealed by ABC, no?
The ABC News show “20/20” on Friday plans to air what it has learned about Deborah Jeane Palfrey’s business from 46 pounds of phone records she gave the network before a judge’s order barring her from releasing them took effect.
