Pardon Libby
Let me get this straight. Joseph Wilson lies through his teeth about his investigation into yellow cake in Niger and publishes a book full of lies. He says his information proes that Iraq did not seek uranium in Africa and that the CIA told Bush the evidence was sketchy before he used such information in his 2003 State of the Union address. The 9/11 Commission later determined that Wilson's findings actually bolstered the case that Iraq was seeking uranium in Africa and that the CIA had not expressed concern about the evidence. He tells everyone that Cheney sent him on his trip to Africa. The White House says they've never heard of him. Next thing you know, Robert Novak publishes a column informing the public that Valerie Plame, a CIA agent and Wilson's wife, sent him to Africa, not the White House. Who gave Novak the name? Obviously, say the Dems and their cohorts in the media, someone from the White House - trying to destroy Wilson for criticizing the President. However, two problems: Plame was not a covert agent (so no crime was committed) and Richard Armitage (Bush critic) revealed her name to reporters. However, while trying to help the investigation, Scooter Libby mixed a few things up, easy to do if your memory is not perfect. He was not responsible for the leak. However, the media never lets the facts get in the way of a good Bush - White House scandal. Read more at American Thinker.
