Libby: No Jail Time - Thanks to President

The grand miscarriage of justice has been partially stopped.
Scooter Libby will not go to jail over the inconsistencies in the 5 times he testified before the grand jury. A grand jury which did not do what it was convened to do, identify the person (Richard Armitage) who leaked that Mrs Plame worked for the CIA. The runaway US Attorney Fitzpatrick figured out quickly that leaked that she worked at CIA was not a crime, but since he was determined to convicted somebody of something, he attacked Scooter Libby.

Mr Libby was sentenced to 30 months in jail, fined $250,000 and placed on probation. The President commuted the jail time.

Over-reactions to this action by President Bush:

Barack Obama:

"This decision to commute the sentence of a man who compromised our national security cements the legacy of an Administration characterized by a politics of cynicism and division, one that has consistently placed itself and its ideology above the law.

NOTE: Scooter Libby did not compromise our security - Sandy "Pants" Berger did, and Berger committed a felony to protect the Clintons from their crimes and failures.
