Scooter Guilty; Shooter Next?
A Federal jury has found former Cheney chief of staff Scooter Libby guilty on 4 of 5 felony counts of obstruction of justice, making false statements and perjury. As Chris Matthews said, stumbling into the truth, this is more than a perjury trial, or the outing of a CIA operative. It is about the bogus justifications for war against Iraq, and that's why the Shooter and the White House were so petrified of Joseph Wilson's report that found no evidence of Iraq seeking uranium in Niger. Discrediting Wilson was key to limiting the damage of his revelation. As the trial moves into the appeal and sentencing phases, the Shooter will be hoping that the prosecutors aren't successful in pressuring Libby to offer up more information on the VP's role in this developing situation.
