Is Classified Information for Bush's Private Political Use?

Now that we are aware that George Bush himself authorized the selective leaking of then classified national security information to discredit a challenge to the rationale for the invasion of Iraq, we must wonder what powers and discretion this administration might feel constrained to use for political purposes, if any.

A democracy depends upon a balance of power between the branches of government and leadership that will be faithful to the overall interests of the people. The people of the United States had no compelling interest in the invasion of Iraq and for that very reason, George Bush and his administration had to fabricate and exaggerate the rationale for it.
