What Did He Know And When Did He Know It?

In September 2003, George W Bush during an interview in Chicago said "I don't know of anybody in my administration who leaked classified information. If somebody did leak classified action, I'd like to know about it, and we'll take the appropriate action."

Mark Sandalow, of the San Francisco Chronicle writes:

The month-long trial established beyond a reasonable doubt that White House officials at the highest level conducted a campaign to discredit those who questioned their declarations about Iraq's weapon capabilities -- declarations that turned out to be wrong.

And the testimony showed that President Bush was either lying about the White House role in outing a CIA officer at the center of the scandal, or kept in the dark by top aides who deliberately defied his orders to come forward.

Which is worse, that he knew and lied, or that Dick Cheney orchestrated the campaign without informing him?
