    Collins, a former Washington Post reporter, said jurors wanted to hear from others involved in the case, including Bush political adviser Karl Rove, who was one of two sources for the original leak. Defense attorneys originally said both Libby and Cheney would be witnesses, and Rove was on the potential witness list.

    “I will say there was a tremendous amount of sympathy for Mr. Libby on the jury. It was said a number of times, ‘What are we doing with this guy here? Where’s Rove? Where are these other guys?”’ Collins said. “I’m not saying we didn’t think Mr. Libby was guilty of the things we found him guilty of. It seemed like he was, as Mr. Wells put it, he was the fall guy.”

    Rove wasn't there because there was no proof he did anything. So yes, in this case justice was served, at least as far as Rove goes. Libby, not so much.

    Libby got screwed because the prosecutor couldn't justify all that time and money without some results to please his masters.

    Lol. You just ignored and dismissed the jury who actually attended the fourteen days of trial and convicted Libby on four felonies. Your just another patronizing neo-con.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    The right, not so much, but it's "codified" in Alinsky's writings of which there are no shortage of followers on the left

    I would say the jury was duped noting that juries are not allowed all of the information in many cases

    Noting that just as I said, the jury had to make a decision without having all the information. Again, how could he cover up a crime that was never committed?

    Typical partisan liberal.

    Resort to name calling as soon as you realize you are losing the debate.

    You're dismissed.

    The jury also didn't hear how Judith Miller's claim that Fitzgerald withheld information from the jury.

    But that's not at all what he claimed. He claimed the MIC was reigning over the US. That's pathetic idiocy.

    Are you suggesting that Ike was being pathetically idiotic in warning the country to beware the MIC?

    Ok, well there you have it then. We have a failed justice system. Yet another thing America needs to repair. The jury's are all duped.

    I think that you're dismissal of the jury's conclusion means that you are the one who must be dismissed, hear?
