How this scandal will unfold

Courtesy of the Daou Report.

I think he missed the final stage:

11. Once the story has blended into the long string of scandals, Bush will issue a smirking, weary, "mistakes were made - we all know that"-type "confession" during a press conference in order to cue the media that they truly may not speak of this scandal anymore. No one will be fired, policy will not change, and yet the story will finally disappear.

And he missed another step. Let's call it 4.5 - the old "Clinton and Carter did it too" defense. In this case, relying on readers (like me, sadly) to not look into what "Pursuant to section 302(a)(1)" means. Hint: That section requires the Attorney General to certify is the search will not involve "the premises, information, material, or property of a United States person.
