White House official Libby guilty

03/06/07 | by admin [mail] | Categories: computer/tech

White House official Libby guilty (BBC) - A former key White House official, Lewis Libby, has been found guilty of obstruction of justice and perjury. Libby, ex-chief of staff to Vice-President Dick Cheney, faces a prison term of up to 25 years. He will be sentenced in June.

I wish this trial had been about the real issue, which is the outing of a covert CIA agent. I also wish that they could have gone after the people that told Libby to do this. Cheney was involved in this. I also thought that Robert Novak should have felt more heat than he did over this, but I guess some people are tougher to get than others. If they're willing to lie about something that they claim is not even illegal, is there really any reason to trust this administration about anything?

This is a note on the poll, I’d like to go with a guided evolution, but there is no option for that.

I don’t think it is illegal for the president or vice-president to interfere or undermine an intelligence operation. For anybody else, it would have been.

Wasn’t it shown that Valerie Plame was not covert at the time this all went down? Also wasn’t Ms Plame also shown to have committed perjury while under oath?

You might want to lay off the FOX News, capital-D Danny.

Sorry. It hasn’t been shown - yet.

It does appear that the AP on 3/17 as printed by msnbc does show some discrepancies in the testimonies. She didn’t dispatch her husband to Nigeria - according to her, but she did according to CIA and State department official’s testimonies.

Also a blurb there that Ms Plame’s position did not fall under the legal definition of covert and that is why no one was charged with the leak.
