    How often do you leave the individual argument and go "liberals?" I think that says it.

    From the Dittohead not! definition of political terms:

    Liberal (lib-rule) n.

    1. anyone who disagrees with my point of view. see also "conservative," or "neo con"
    2. delusional person whose ideas will bring about the end of democracy as we know it.
    3. anyone who is an enemy of the USA

    Note: definitions 1-3 are really the same thing.

    More he didn't break any law. There was no intent, and he answered honestly. J and few others often miss the point on this. Libby and those he likely worked for could still be guilty even if Armitage wasn't.

    Yes, that's the way I remember it too.

    The guilty party (ies) were Dubya & Dick, IMO. They exposed Plame just to punish her husband for his truthful statements.

    Hmmm....Let's see, Plame was "outed", an investigation was started by a spec prosecutor Fitz to find out "who outed Plame", he found out that it was Richard Armitage, Colin Powell's CoS, early on, and instead of charging him, or bringing the case to conclusion, he kept the SP going until he ultimately got Libby on a process charge. The whole time it was Armitage who broke the law, if any was broken, and the only prosecution to happen out of this was someone who never outed anyone....All because we all know now how Colin Powell rolled politically, and his CoS was right there with him...You people that want so bad to "perp walk" Bush, or Cheney, or anyone connected with them is really pathetic. You had the person who gave Plame's name to Novak, and because he was one of you, you trumped up other charges.....What a joke.

    You assume that only one thing is going on at a time. You are mistake if you anything Armitage did or didn't do clears either Libby or his bosses.

    Further, he assumes that the US Justice Department actually seeks and reveals the truth. Not a safe or valid assumption.

    That's ridiculous. The scope of the investigation was to find out "who outed Valerie Plame". That was known within the first month of the investigation to be Richard Armitage, CoS to Colin Powell. During that investigation Powell resigned his post as SoS, and Armitage became a darling of the liberal left by frequently appearing on Olberpukes show to run down the Bush Administration on the WoT....And further the frothing hatred for the Bush administration by those on the liberal left, wanting to see openly not only the President, but anyone in that administration "frog marched" across the WH lawn was everywhere. The emotional lies, untruths, and rumor spread about that administration by news outlets like MSNBC, CBS, ABC, and the rest were disgusting, and were designed to undermine the administrations prosecution of the WoT.

    Fitzgerald, if he was doing his job correctly, should have named Armitage when he found out, and closed the investigation at that point. Any other crap that you, or anyone else wanted investigated should have been able to stand on its own merit. As a consequence, we, the taxpayer spent millions chasing rumor, and innuendo, all to slap the VP CoS with a process charge that was totally unrelated to the named reason for the investigation, because he couldn't remember the exact words he told Fitz 15 months earlier....What a joke.

    You libs are really funny. You will spare no expense when going after an administration you dislike, and no lie is out of bounds when doing such. But, put "your guy" in the seat, and its "hands off" when it comes to everything up to and including, trashing the constitution, weakening our defense, death of ambassadors, embassies attacked, etc. Weak dudes, very weak.

    You seem to think that liberals didn't like the liberal Bush administration. Why is that? Don't liberals just love to have another liberal in the White House?
