Yep, It Was Rove

Back in March, Howling Latina wrote about the Rovian machination to fire a selected few U.S. attorneys under the cover of fire-them all! And how swell that by firing all 93 men and women, Patrick Fitzgerald would've been on that lofty list.

NPR has confirmed HL's suspicion as reported by Think Progress:
More Rove fingerprints. NPR reports, “According to someone who’s had conversations with White House officials, the plan to fire all 93 U.S. attorneys originated with political adviser Karl Rove. It was seen as a way to get political cover for firing the small number of U.S. attorneys the White House actually wanted to get rid of. Documents show the plan was eventually dismissed as impractical.”
Oh dear...

It was actually stated by investigators that it is believed that Roves influence may have been an advisory one...only asked "what would you do?"

It's also been stated that the Bush Administration's connection to this is through Rove only, as far as they have found. Looks like Bush had nothing to do with this, but his underlings are really undermining his authority (as usual).
