Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

Libby Gulity

Right up to the final stages of the deliberations, there were hints of some confusion on the jury as to just what Mr. Libby was accused of doing. This morning, for instance, Judge Walton was asked if Mr. Libby was accused of making a false statement to a reporter from Time magazine. No, the judge said; he was not.

Uh oh.

This means there's a crack in the wall, a thread loose in the garment, a flaw in the flawless covering for the Iraq war.  A weak link in the chain of protection.

Who knows where this could lead?  On the one hand, Libby could 'take the bullet' for the President and be a good scapegoat -- the buck stops there.

On the other hand, Libby might cut a deal for good behavior, and implicate Cheney or Bush or even others.

If we go by the Nixon crew, Bush is probably safe.

Bush is safe. Nobody thinks he is smart enough to plan a cover up.

Why would it lead anywhere.  The trial has already been going on for all this time and has ended recently.  If some scandal were to break related to this, wouldnt it have already gotten out.

I'm curious to know who else may be get one. Clinton's last list was an eyeopener.

He'll remain out of jail pending appeals. The day he is due to go turn himself in, he'll be pardoned. Or bush's last day in office. Whichever is first.

I think the President that wins in 2008 should pardon Bush and Cheney.

...then immediately deliver them to the Hague for trial for war crimes. (even though we didn't sign the treaty, they can still be tried)

I remember the Marc Rich thing and his brother.  I didn't like the Marc Rich pardon, but, I wasn't terribly shocked.  I was much more pissed at Ford for Nixon and Bush for the Iran-Contra pardons.

Can't the president just pardon him?  It's not like he's running for re-election.

If we're lucky, he'll get sentenced when Bush has other stuff on his mind. Maybe sometime in the week he serves he'll get shanked in the kidney.
