The L Word.

At the of end of 2005, this blog granted the word 'leak' the title 'Word of the Year'... in the hope that "Impeachment" or "Resignation" might be the words for '06. But given the news this week, it looks like we may have to repeat ourselves and give the word of '05 the same award for '06.

NOTE: especially if he White House continues to confirm that President Bush had authorized a leak of classified information about pre-Iraq war intelligence, describing the release of such information as beneficial for the "public interest."

NOTE2 : 'pulic interest' is usually understood as "common well-being" or "general welfare" but that may be too liberal a view- for more details, see here.
