The intellectual ether is flowing like a firehose. I'm glad to see I'm not crazy & not the only one outraged. Thank God for the internets, since only a few MSMers like Keith Olbermann have a basic understanding of the US Constitution & the Rule of Law.
Truth Hunter's insightful editorial
Olbermann frames the Libby commutation within the sordid history of Bush 43's sordid presidency
Bush commutes Libby's sentence
1 Libby leaked the name of undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame, who was working on counter-WMD. It's possible that the US lost intelligence that could prevent US deaths, we may never learn what happened. Libby's act here was treasonous.
2 Libby was not tried for #1, but was convicted of perjury, of lying under oath.
3 Libby was sentenced for 30 months of prison
4 NEWS - Bush commutes Libby's sentence. The Rule of Law in America takes a severe blow.
5 Our Democratic party leaders, including Pres "leading candidates" H Clinton, Obama, & Edwards, Sen Leader Reid & House Leader Pelosi are acting real BITCHMADE (No Imus) & not challenging this seriously, saying "impeachment is off the table" & not fighting for the rule of law.
At least Kucinich has proposed to impeach Cheney.
I want to see how the Dem Pres candidates respond to this.
My political heads, Truth Hunter, Lucho, etc, pls chime in. Holla at me. This ish is getting real disgusting.
Rule of Law shat on? In the words of Randy Marsh "I'm sorry, I thought this was America"
