Libby Skirts Justice

B. Thomas Cooper - Editor

Scooter Libby should be in prison this morning. Only an absolute fool would defend or support the transgressions of the current administration. Those who continue to do so are as bad as Hitler himself!. It is neither noble nor patriotic to guard the door while the fox raids the hen-house.

For those of you with the audacity to write about the news without first learning the facts, Scooter Libby was never charged with outing Valerie Plame. He was charged with obstructing justice, lying to the FBI and lying to a grand jury, all of which he was found guilty. Outing a covert CIA agent and obstructing justice are different crimes, in this case committed by different people. Unfortunately, many people have very little respect or understanding of law.

Libby was found guilty and sentenced to prison by a fair and honest jury of his peers. The courts decision was then subverted by the most corrupt administration in the history of this formerly great country. Libby belongs in prison. He is a criminal. Denial, a staple of the republican pathos, changes nothing.
