Because We Should, We Can, We Do

Why is everyone getting so worked up about this. I think it's a proud moment for the White House:
James Knodell, director of the Office of Security at the White House, told a congressional committee today that he was aware of no internal investigation or report into the leak of covert CIA agent Valerie Plame. The White House had first opposed Knodell testifying but after a threat of a subpoena from the committee yesterday he was allowed to appear today.
Personally? I'm very proud of the White House's efficiency. Why in the world would you start an investigation, possibly costing millions and wasting an enormous amount of time and energy, to investigate something in which you already know the answer?
