In the movie "The Wizard of Oz", the great and powerful Wizard uttered the words "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!"

So who is the man, or woman, behind the curtain offering the media damaging leaks about Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler ("Gansler says he made 'a mistake,' Oct. 24)?

Whoever it may be, this person is devoid of a heart, certainly possesses no courage and doesn't have the brains to realize what they are doing is potentially damaging to his or her credibility as well.

It reeks of hypocrisy. There is obviously a rat as well behind that curtain. Reveal thyself, coward!
