Now Cough

Thursday, February 01, 2007


The modified limited hangout of the Bush administration is now turning into a case of indecent public exposure.

Or disclosure.

And Scooter Libby, who was willing to do all sorts of law-skirting things for the Bushies is now being hung out to dry in the perjury case he faces in federal court of l'affaire Plame.

Until now. Not one of the witnesses who has testified so far, all newsies, has backed up Libby's statements to the grand jury about when he claims to have first learned that Valerie Plame was a CIA agent.

Libby was leaking like crazy to anyone with a pen and notebook. Who told him to? Wellll...there's lots to suggest the Vice President did, or suggested as such. Did the President? Mr. Deniability?

Hmmm.. some tasty new bits hint that maybe he did. Who would rat out the Prez? How about Mr. Shoot-Him-In-The-Face Cheney?

It sounds like the battle of the aides. After all, the VP has been supporting Scooter. But the Prez didn't want Karl the Architect caught up in this mess, and to some it looks like Scooter is taking the cow pie in the face.

Now, when does Cheney testify? Under oath?
