Did You Honestly Expect Anything Different?

Mustn't Hurt The Precious


President Bush commuted Monday the prison term of former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, facing 30 months in prison after a federal court convicted him of perjury, obstruction of justice and lying to investigators.
A commutation is a total right of the president and it cannot be challenged by any attorney or court(...)

Earlier Monday, a federal appeals court unanimously ruled that Libby could not delay serving his sentence, which would have put Libby just weeks away from surrendering to a prison.

So, an active participant in a massive coverup who was found guilty of same, a coverup involving treasonous activity not least of which involved lying to the public, involving their country in a penultimate war of choice and spending untold blood and treasure, in addition to revealing the protected identity of a covert C.I.A. agent as revenge for having a modest amount of truth spoken to them can now escape any meaningful penalties...No doubt the possibility of his informing on his higher-ups played a part in the decision-making process.

Enjoy the sunset, America.
