Libby: A Victim

Scooter Libby, former chief of staff for VP Cheney, found guilty of 4 of 5 charges stemming from the Federal Grand Jury investigation into the non-crime of leaking that Mrs Plame worked at the CIA.
Richard Armitage 'leaked' that she worked for the CIA, and that she arranged for her husband to go to Niger.
Her Husband, Joe Wilson, lied about what he learned in Niger. He goal was to undermine the Bush Administration.
Scooter Libby, who testified 7 times before the Grand Jury, was inconsistent in his testimony. What honest person wouldn't be somewhat inconsistent in recalling conversations which occurred more than 2 years prior.

A member of the jury, a former Washington Post reporter, stated he was looking for Rove, or Cheney...WAS THIS JURY BIAS AGAINST THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION?

Fact: It was known that no crime was committed, before the investigation was launched - Mrs. Plame was not a covert agent. She was simply a CIA employee.

Fact: It was known one month into investigation, that Richard Armitage leaked the information about Mrs Plame.

The charges need to be overturned on appeal because there was no underlying crime for the grand jury to investigation. This is a gross miscarriage of justice.
