CIA Leak

The husband of a CIA officer whose identity was leaked two years ago has joined those suggesting President Bush should say enough is enough and fire Karl Rove.

Former Ambassador Joseph Wilson tells NBC the political adviser abused his power by discussing Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame with a reporter.

Wilson also says the White House has been stonewalling after revelations about Rove's involvement in the leak. Wilson also said statements by Rove's defenders that Rove didn't mention Plame by name don't "stand the smell test."

As for how he and his wife are coping with the controversy, Wilson says Plame is tough, and most of her time is occupied with the couple's five-year-old twins.

Wilson has said his wife's name was leaked to discredit him after he challenged the administration's claims about Iraq's quest for banned weapons.
