A Moment From The Beach For Scooter Libby

Published by at 1:40 pm under All General Discussions,Plame Game

I want to thank all the guest bloggers holding down the fort here while LJStrata and I enjoy a wonderful Caribbean beach. I am taking a quick noon-time retreat from the sun and thought I would drop a note on the Libby verdict. I have to say I am surprised Libby was found guilty regarding the Plame/Wilson lies to a pliant media that turned into an abuse of prosecutorial power. It tells me our justice system is still being abused for political gain instead of serving to protect the people of this country. Fitzgerald can now join Starr and all the other useless “witch hunters” who have created one of the greatest travesties on our proud judicial system. So can Judge Walton who really should have shut this entire joke down. I don’t we as a nation can take anymore of these embarrassing show trails which pretend to represent the opposite of what they are. The person who was wronged by aggressive power plays was Libby. And the power mad people were not in the white house but were the prosecutors and the the Kerry Campaign and its CIA-connected lap dog. Kettle, meet pot. And a pox on all your houses. And liberals – remember what happened to the Reps with the Clinton impeachment. Americans are fed up with all this abuse.

Again, thanks to Harold, Seixon, Crosspatch and DJStrata for holding down the fort – great work.

    I have to say I was not at all surprised that I. Lewis Libby was found guilty because he was guilty: he lied repteatedly and under oath to a Federal Grand Jury. And he did it badly and ineptly – and got caught.

    And the reason he lied was to protect his boss, a serial liar, in perpetrating a disastrous hoax upon the American people, and the Congress, by intentionally confabulating a preposterous story of imminent threat of mushroom clouds from Saddam Hussein – as part of a concerted Bush Admisistration effort to justify a war with Iraq that Bush wanted to jump into the DAY he took office in 2001.

    Former Treasury Secretary O’Neill was quite clear about this – at the very first cabinet meeting in February of 2001, all Bush wanted to tlalk about was war with Iraq. Richard Clarke reiterated this Bush obsession with coming up with a reason to invade Iraq.

    The entire connexion between Saddam and Hussein and al-Qaeda and/or nuclear WMD’s was a criminal and felonious hoax upon the public.

    Ted Wells was right about one thing – Libby – who by all accounts is not a bad guy – IS THE FALL GUY – but the final shoe has not yet dropped on this sordid episode.

    Joe, ditto!

    Isn’t it funny that the party of “is,is” can’t get the facts straight or the meaning of words correct? s/o

    Lie is different from “can’t recall” or mistake, especially trying to recall something from 3 years prior.

    This whole case is a cover up by Plame and some senators who are involved with things they shouldn’t be involved with (see And, the undermining of a sitting President during a time of war.

    EVERYONE should be afraid that a shadow government can wreck such havoc…a shadow government not elected by the people…

    Witch hunt for the purpose of (again) dumbing down our moral fibre…and giving moral relevence to what Bill Clinton did.

    The fact that a certain poster was so sure about the verdict is because he knew WHO was on the jury, imho. The evidence and the facts did not add up to the verdict.

    No, he was NOT caught lying. He was caught not recalling things and the jury panel believed Libby not recalling things.

    Ivehadit is absolutely correct. If martin-sooth-copperhead spent so much time in the federal juries, he had to know so much about Denis Collins that Libby had no chance of getting a fair trial.

  5. MerlinOS2 says:

    If Collins influenced the jury by his personal knowledge of witnesses or his professional journalism knowledge of anonymous sources then you have the effect of an expert witness without the opportunity of the defense to cross examine him.

  6. Soothsayer says:

    No, he was NOT caught lying.

    Oh, but he WAS caught lying – he was indicted for it – he was arraigned on it – he was tried before a jury of his peers – and he was convicted – beyond a reasonable doubt – of it.

    Get over it.

  7. Terrye says:


    Well he should have done what Hillary Clinton did 150 times during her Whitewater testimony, just say I don’t recall.

    In truth the “lies” you talk about come down to when did he talk to Russert, since his testimony conflicted with Russert they assumed it was lie..but in truth it might have been that no one lied. I know if you ask me what I said to someone in a conversation two years ago or exactly what day it was, I would not be sure.

    However, I have noticed that the left has no problem with the fact that Joe Wilson lied, even the Washington Post has taken to calling him a “blowhard”…no, lying is ok fine so long as the guy is on your team.

    I am not condoning lying or anything else, but if they did not bring charges against Armitage for leaking to Novak…then the whole fiasco was a waste of time.

    Joe Wilson used his wife’s connections to get the trip and then he lied about it and then Libby responded to the lie.

    But to you no doubt, that was ok. Just like it was ok when all those people in the Clinton administration were indicted. I believe his administration hit some kind of record in fact.

  8. ivehadit says:

    And I guess you believe OJ is innocent…and Michael Jackson, too…

    And it is truly sad that one would think that the DC jury is a jury of Scooter Libby’s peers…

    Again, I am glad I do not inhabit the hate-filled and dysfunctional world of liberals.

    Oh, and I am waiting on comments about the illegal black market sales of uranium (see

  9. Terrye says:

    For a little historical perspective on what some say is the most indicted administration in history go here

    That was the shoe was on the other foot and it was all the fault of the vast right wing conspiracy.

  10. lurker9876 says:

    You get over it, martin-sooth-copperhead. You just cannot face the facts and truth.

    Libby did NOT lie. He did not recall. The jury panel did not do a good job based on Fitz’ shoddy presentation.

    End of subject.

  11. lurker9876 says:

    Excellent points, terrye.

  12. dennisa says:

    Get off your political agenda, Soothsayer. You could care less if Libby lied, as long as someone in the Bush Administration gets hung.

  13. DubiousD says:

    No offense, Terrye, but that link you provided is a hunk of junk.

    According to the CDS (Clinton Derangement Syndrome) sufferer who wrote the article, the Clintons not only murdered Vince Foster, they also had “underground connections” (whatever that means) to the deaths of Ron Brown and William Colby, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Waco massacre, the downing of TWA 800, the Saudi bombing, and, wait, I think maybe the death of Lisa Simpsons’ cat Snowball I. (Okay, maybe not the last one. Guess Billary cleverly covered their tracks there.)

  14. lurker9876 says:


    I read that Libby is a democrat. He worked for Marc Rich. He was March’s defense lawyer and Fitz was a prosecutor against Marc.

    HHHmmm…interesting; yet, martin-sooth-copperhead could care less whether Libby lied or did not lie. All he cared about was to see someone from the WH hung period.

  15. For Enforcement says:

    DubiousD You’re not implying that the Clinton crowd wasn’t responsible for the Vince Foster murder and the Waco Massacre are you? No thinking person would even question it. Would they?

  16. lurker9876 says:

    Charles Krauthammer – he agrees that this is a case of a missing crime, no intent, no motive, no opportunity, no materiality.

  17. DubiousD says:

    Uh, yeah, For Enforcement, I’m implying that the Clintons didn’t murder Vince Foster. That’s really getting into the bottom of the crackpot barrel. Even Gary Aldrich never accused the Clintons of having Foster offed.

    And David Koresh was responsible for the Waco massacre. (Jeez, do we still need to go over this ground?) If anyone in the Clinton administration should be cited for blame, it should be Stephen Higgins, then head of the ATF. It was his botched raid on the compound that lead to the stand-off.

    On my next post, we will discuss whether Burr really did shoot Hamilton.
