Libby's prosecution for lying under oath had NOTHING to do with the case. What is profound here is spending $40 million in an investigation for a perceived crime where the culprit, Armitrage, was already known to be the source for the story.
Now what level of mental degradation does it take to NOT ask why we even had an investigation and then prosecute the person who was NOT the source for lying under oath?
Again, in my logical opinion, this is more evidence of the Alice-in-Wonderland mentality the world is heading where wrong is right, right is wrong, up is down and down is up.
[ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_Libby"]LINK[/ame].Libby resigned all three government positions immediately after he was indicted on federal charges of obstruction and perjury resulting from the grand jury investigation into the leak of the covert identity of Central Intelligence Agency officer Valerie Plame. In his trial for his role in the Plame affair, United States v. Libby, the jury convicted Libby on four of the five counts in the indictment: one count of obstruction of justice; two counts of perjury; and one count of making false statements to federal investigators.
TD: Did you really not know this or were you just bull****ting for the hell of it?
The facts be stubborn things, my unintentionally humorous friend.
Have you been drinking, or are you just THAT incoherent when it comes to reading comprehension?
FACT: This was an investigation of the "outing" of a CIA agent where the source of the presumed “outing”, Armitage, was known before the investigation even began.
FACT: No crime of "outing" a CIA agent was ever discovered in this case and NO prosecutions for that crime were brought forth.
You were desperately attempting to suggest otherwise? Read Grim's response; at least he is coherent and comprehends what it is he is talking about, something that cannot be said for your ramblings.

he was convicted by a DC jury of testifying falsely in an investigation that turned out to be over nothing
certainly not the first time
why have plame/wilson/vanity fair/armitage/libby/novak/yellowcake/etc been totally written OUT of history?
the entire scandal completely scotched?
because the white house never did, never tried, never intended to out an agent who wasn't even an agent in the first place
the white house tried to set straight exactly who this bigmouth op ed writer wilson was
cheney had NEVER HEARD OF HIM
and wilson's claiming in his puffed up op ed they're closer PALS than obama and wm ayers
wilson said the WHITE HOUSE SENT HIM
he came back and mumbled varying versions of his "findings" to agents
his wife is the one who got him the job
that's how her name got brought up
either way, mom and pop america couldn't give a darn
they care greatly, however, about all this health care business
perhaps you've seen it on tv
mom and dad have been showing up in record numbers---in the middle of the SUMMER, yet---at town halls, expressing their umbrage
no way ms mccaskill or mr harkin or mr ross or mr specter or literally 100 others...
no way they're gonna cross mom
health care is DEAD
everyone in america is scared of mom
and she has DECIDED---she wants her HIP
pedro and paloma, bless their corazones pequenos, are just gonna have to get by somehow
did you hear what GRASSLEY said yesterday?
mr grassley is probably the MOST IMPORTANT person in america right now
because when dick durbin on sunday signaled that the white house was "open" to "cutting" the "public option," it essentially handed off the football (for the first time) to the REPUBLICANS in the SENATE
when durbin did what he did, he rendered all the doings in pelosi's place DECEASED
it's up to the SENATE, now
maybe you've heard about GATEKEEPER baucus' UBIQUITOUS SIX
the 3 repubs and the 3 dems who've been tearing their hair trying to cobble a compromise to save the suffering sick man, obamacare
well, GRASSLEY is the red LEADER of the TRIO
and---did you HEAR what he SAID yesterday
he doesn't want the plug pulled on gramma, either
even the CO OP, now
apparently, all signs indicate
moment of silence?
Of course, this has nothing to do with anything. I made my comments because a liberal falsely claimed that Cheney orchestrated the leak of Valerie Plame.
A key point there is "Intelligence gathering". My post again, was in response to a liberal that lied and falsely claimed that Cheney knew there were not WMD in Iraq prior to the war. It was determined by the CIA and Intelligence Community that Iraq did have wmd, and they are the ones responsible for intelligence gathering... not anyone in the administration.Wrong again. Funny you should use the word clueless, as I suspect you have read no accounting as to how intelligence was gathered prior to the war. Not every credible intelligence agency had this conclusion.
You can knit-pick my words all you want, but it doesn't change my point... Which is... The post I responded to was a complete and total liberal fabrication.
