Anyone Convicted in Leak Inquiry Will Be Fired, Bush Says

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush said Monday that if anyone on his staff committed a crime in the CIA-leak case, that person will ''no longer work in my administration.'' At the same time, Bush yet again sidestepped a question on the role of his top political adviser, Karl Rove, in the matter.

''We have a serious ongoing investigation here and it's being played out in the press,'' Bush said at an East Room news conference.

Bush, appearing at a news conference with visiting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of India, spoke a day after Time magazine's Matthew Cooper said that a 2003 phone call with Rove was the first he heard about the wife of Bush administration critic Joseph Wilson apparently working for the CIA.

Bush said in June 2004 that he would fire anyone in his administration shown to have leaked information that exposed the identity of Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame. On Monday, however, he added the qualifier that it would have be shown that a crime was committed.
