Libby shouldnt be in jail, because he didnt do anything wrong.
she was NOT covert. She had a desk job.
It's about time. The liberals got their pound of flesh, breaking and jailing a man who had done nothing wrong before being put on trial. They'll have to settle for that. They won't be satisfied, of course, but that's the way the ball bounces.
Now if would only pardon Ramos and Compean, the two Border Patrol agents who wounded an illegal alien drug smuggler that the US govt later paid to come back to the US and testify against them. For not filing a proper report on the incident, they are serving 10-plus years in Federal prison while the smuggler walks free.
Bush commutes sentence for Libby

President Bush commuted the sentence of former aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby Monday, sparing him from a 2 1/2-year prison term in the CIA leak case.
Bush left intact a $250,000 fine and two years probation for Libby, according to a senior White House official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision had not been announced.
Bush's move came hours after a federal appeals panel ruled Libby could not delay his prison term in the CIA leak case. That decision put the pressure on the president, who had been sidestepping calls by Libby's allies to pardon the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney.
Libby was convicted in March of lying to authorities and obstructing the investigation into the 2003 leak of CIA operative's identity. He was the highest-ranking White House official ordered to prison since the Iran-Contra affair.
That is not what he was convicted of. That is really irrelevant.
He was convicted of obstruction of justice. The same thing the GOP wanted to remove Bill Clinton from office for.
So Little Acorn....you must feel the same way about Bill Clinton huh?
He should never have been impeached for lying under oath?
Not the same. Clinton DID lie under oath and was NOT convicted for it. All Libby did is try to answer the questions put to him.
I am not a legal scholar. I dont know if he committed a crime, im not a shark, er lawyer.
He lied under oath.
And her identity WAS classified.
So classified that they admitted to a reporter she worked for them. Yup.
Separate names with a comma.
