Okay Scooter Here and Then Moving On

Scooter was convicted of lying about whether he remembered if something that never happened had actually happened. If he said it never happened he's be okay because it didn't. Instead he said he didn't remember it ever happening and a jury did not believe him.

IMO the massively long sentence was a judge forcing the Administation to pardon in a political move. Anyone wish to point to a MSM timeline of this judges' political affiliations and promotions?

Reposted from last thread:

Considering how many bits have gotten used up here and elsewhere railing that lawbreakers like Casey do not get called to justice, it's mighty odd that you support forgiving a convicted felon.

You may not approve of the conviction but he had his day in court and was convicted by a jury. He should do the time.

"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. This is exactly the kind of politics we must change so we can begin restoring the American people’s faith in a government that puts the country’s progress ahead of the bitter partisanship of recent years."

Guilty of WHAT!?

not remebering a fact properly about something that wasn't even a crime?

Yeah, real justice there... the jury just convicted him because they couldn't convict cheney on some trumped up charge... they've as much as addmitted that.

NoVa Sideliner said...

Lying in a complex set of questioning to the feds about a crime that didn't exists, versus lying over and over and over and over (did I get to eight yet?) in writing in order to obtain money via fraud... hmmmmm.

Sure, I can see the crime that Scooter Libby is accused of, and how it needs to be dealt with (though I'm on Rob Dawg's side here, a tangential crime which was actually caused as part of investigating a crime that didn't exist).

However, that sentence was harsh by any means. Actually, now that I think of it, not by any means: It was at the same time a political punishment, a slap for not being contrite, and also to set an example of how one should and must grovel before the Inquisition if one is called.

Then again, what can we expect in such a case? Fitzgerald can't leave empty-handed after spending so much money and PR on his (failed) quest.

let me tell you, I worked in a law office back in a former life, and sometimes I was there at depositions. If we put in jail everyone who lied... better start building new jails.

Can we relate this to Snowflake? When's that court date? Maybe (perhaps likely) the suit against him would be groundless, but who KNOWS what kind of perjury Fliptard might commit if he were up on the stand. The mind boggles. He can win that suit and lose lots more than that if he doesn't keep his mouth shut. Like maybe Libby should have done?

I'm not surprised. With poll numbers so far down and his legislative agenda forgotten, it isn't like Bush has anything to lose. And to be perfectly honest, there is something to the argument that Libbey's punishment was overly harsh (I'm hardly a right-wing conservative).

Zintradi: guilty of lying

Y'know, that thing that got a previous president impeached.

It pisses me off that the "party of law and order" who believes in "enforcing the rule of law" get all weepy when one of their operatives is the person getting caught and punished.

It's pretty clear to me that, at least in some areas, a crime is only a crime when you don't like the person who committed it.

VERY disappointed in this - Outing a CIA operative is serious business. Others got away with this, but Scooter was guilty as hell of obstruction.

Should be held accountable. 30 months is light for outing a CIA operative for political gain.

Actually, the problem was that it was impossible to determine if a crime had been committed because (wait for it) Scooter was lying.

Imagine, if he'd told the truth, he wouldn't be going to jail for obstructing justice. Especially since he did nothing wrong (except lie under oath of course)...

Save Libby said...

@Firstmurst
He was guilty because the jury decided to believe Tim Russert instead of him about an issue that wasn't illeagal...
Any other normal prosecutor would have dropped it, but at that point he was on a mission to convict somebody no matter what.

I think you will find that it came out that Libby did NOT out Plame. Someone else came forward to claim that honor.

Lying under oath? Bad idea. See what the wignutosphere fails to understand is that Libby was lying when he had sworn to tell the truth. He was caught lying. It doesn't matter what he was lying about (see also: lying about getting a blowjob). What matters is that he was lying, under oath.

Did I mention that he was lying under oath and that was what he was convicted for? Because that should be noted.

I believe that you have hit the nail on the head. In fact, I believe that the behavior of the Republicans during the Clinton trial both caused the impeachment to fail and revealed their characters somewhat: instead of focusing on whether of not Clinton lied to investigators, they focussed on the sex.

The focus on sex was the wrong strategy. The watchword should have been: "it's about the lying not about the sex".

The Judge and Fitzgerald were both Republican appointees. So they were forcing their own party to make a political move?

walt526 said...

I'd say that the anti-immigration rantings of some of EN's resident xenophobic fascists were much more divisive than this small matter.

As I said earlier, fair-minded people should be able to agree that 30 months in prison for what he was convicted of (not what we think that we know he did) was excessive. A big fine and probation seems appropriate, particularly in light of his history of civil service. I strongly suspect that Libbey and others in the Bush administration collaborated to out the female agent in retaliation for Wilson's report, but no one has been able to prove that in court. So I'm not all that bent out of shape about this matter.

uhhh, maybe because nobody leaked classified info, because she wasn't a covert agent. and maybe becasue Richard Armitage addmitted to leaking her name to begin with, and he's is loved by the left, so that issue was dropped like a hot potato.

IOKIRDI said...

The prosecutor couldn't get at the truth of who revealed national security secrets because Libby wouldn't tell the truth. He was 'obstructing'... something, let's call it 'justice'. And for that he was convicted.

To watch the flailing about by the right is... fascinating. What did Clinton lie about? Getting a blowjob. What was the underlying crime that he was lying about? Getting a blowjob isn't illegal. And yet he was impeached for it.

SRSLY! said...

Was someone convicted of giving Clinton a blowjob?

Alabama_Swamp_Donkey said...

Do you homework, she was undercover and it was classified information.

I served in military and I do understand our classification system. Just because the information becomes public knowledge, does not declassify its status. The status must be reviewed first.

"Plames status was later verified by a document showing her employment history at the CIA, verifying that she was in fact covert. The report states "she traveled at least seven times to more than ten times." When overseas Plame traveled undercover, "sometimes in true name and sometimes in alias -- but always using cover -- whether official or non-official (NOC) -- with no ostensible relationship to the CIA"

iokirdi:

The taxpayers were not paying Clinton to get blow jobs.

Nor were they paying Lewinskyto give blow jobs.

The Oval Office is supposed to be a place of state business, not monkey business.

Clinton's impeachment was entirely correct. It was the Presidential version of a negative employee review.

you are right he was not convicted of that. But the House Oversight Committee did confirm from a statement approved by CIA director Gen. Michael V. Hayden that her status was classified information via EO 12958 and she was undercover at the time of the leaks.

Did a crime occur? The CIA contacted the Justice Dept to the belief that a crime occur.

Unless there's other indictments...that ain't a lot of light for all the smoke and heat generated.

Everyone understands it isn't a crime to reveal an agent but only to knowingly reveal an agent (or secret)?

This is two abstractiond removed from even that. Scooter was convicted because a jury didn't believe he didn't remember details of events that never happened. Got that? Did aliens land on the White house Lawn? I don't remember that happening. You damn well would remember if aliens landed on the White House lawn. You are lying!

Okay. That works for me. Now. Do you remmeber at the time if you knew VP was a covert agent AND at the the time her status was classified and that all the numerous other conduits were irrelevant to the question of blowing her cover and... I don't remember that happpening.

Come on. Don't like Bush, don't like Cheney, don't like hardly nobody these days claiming I support them. Even if this drone did the very worst he is accused of a commutation is the smallest of any possible rewards. Cripes I like Bush even less now for not manning up and forgiving him.

What you get, if you look behind the odd time line of all these leaks, is a much more interesting picture.

Its like the old British sit-com "Yes Minister"- the shadow government of career civil servants have been trying to subvert the policy of the elected government.

Bush had been trying to reform the DoD, CIA and State and make them more responsive to the real world threat we face.

That got sidetracked in this 2 year investigation in to... nothing. No one was ever in danger from this allegedly horrible leak.

Ask yourself where all these leaked documents and tips in the NYT come from- State department lifers trying to hang onto their turf, and resorting to political dirty tricker to do so.

None.

The impeachment and conviction process, despite havingtheChief Justice presiding,is really no more than a personnel action.

True, but the fact still remains that Cheney et al were extracting revenge because somebody in the system who had access to intelligence was revealing the yellow-cake evidence was bullshit. It was ham-handed damage control, and by outing an undercover agent, they committed a crime in the process. Oops!

Problem with acid rain is that our ground water would be acidic anyway.

You calling the Blow-jobber a liar?

We all know that slick-willy is a liar, and used to time missile launchings to new press releases regarding Monica Lewinsky. What of it?


And there were WMD's...one was even used here in this country.

And Americans died from it.

Huh? When did Saddam use WMD's on the United States? Memory hole indeed! I'll bite. What was it?

"When did Saddam use WMD's on the United States?"

I did NOT say that Saddam used WMD's on us. He may HAVE,but I don't know that.

But a WMD WAS used against us, a week after 9/11.

And you have apparently COMPLETELY erased it from your "doublethinker".

"Memory hole indeed! I'll bite. What was it?"

Open your mail recently?

ANTHRAX, you slobbering half-wit!

Did you FORGET that some party,who has NEVER been identified, sent a biological weapon through the mails?

The Senate office building, American Media Building, NBC News,and two post offices.

17 sickened,and 5 people murdered.

It was in all the news...

A week after 9/11, and you just "blanked" it out, huh?

Well...I didn't.

Do I need to draw you a chart?

Can you figure out the 3' of separation between Saddam's labs, a mega-terrorist attack by al-Qaeda, and weaponized anthrax in your Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes?

From the Administration's POV when trying to assess who hit us, and from where?

Jesus Wept! You fuckin' people!

Slip back into your coma so that you can repeat your Party slogans.

Ghads, don't get so worked up Sharky, kinda hard to figure where your coming from here.

Yes, I wrote both messages, and those mines were there long before Cheney came along, he didn't do a thing for the miners. Wyoming coal was and is popular because it burns cleaner. That makes it more valuable. This one of those strange instances where the flaming liberal-retards created more jobs for some coal miners...Dick Cheney had nothing to do with that. Yep, acid rain, and the resulting fall-out and legislation gave a bunch of us poor Wyoming miners jobs, no thanks to Cheney.

Congress-critters like Cheney like to ride-the-tide to get some political benefit from whatever comes their way. What? Do you have a reference showing where Dick took credit for allowing the expansion of some mining claims? I would not be surprised, he is an ass-hat if there ever was one.

Sorry Sharky, thanks for playing, but you lose no definitive link was found between the anthrax scare and Saddam Hussein. You'd think with the war and all that it would be a priority to prove that we had the "smoking gun", but no dice.

Well...that's part of the landscape, ain't it?

At the very least,I'd think credit would be due him for not fucking it up.

"Do you have a reference showing where Dick took credit for allowing the expansion of some mining claims?"

No,none.Mining ain't my gig, dude.

It would just seem that he was part n' parcel of that "sell-off of public lands" that got the tree-huggers all a-flutter back in the 80's.

(They bugged out over the logging leases,but I suspect there were some mineral claims on public lands quietly let also...a forest and it's fauna is photogenic...a hill full of clean coal isn't).

Allright, it was fun playing political thumb wars, but I'm going to celebrate the 4th of July by exercising my god-given right to set off massive explosions of illegal...

wait for it.

good night folks, and hopefully EN won't have developed a schism and jumped the shark by the 5th.

At the very least, you people could get your facts right.

He was not pardoned. His sentence was commuted. In other words the president has said, yes, you're guilty, but you don't need to be punished like anyone else would.

"You'd think with the war and all that it would be a priority to prove that we had the "smoking gun", but no dice."

Oh for God's sake.

You didn't even REMEMBER a fatal WMD attack here in this country until I reminded you of it, and you're now going to argue about it?

Wow...you wiki'ed it!

Did you read this at the bottom of the opening para, o mastermind?

"The crime remains unsolved."

So, since you're a fuckin'expert now, can you tell me WHEN it was determined that Saddam's labs were NOT the source of the weaponized spores?

We were at war in Iraq in March of '03. The Anthrax attacks petered out by October of '01.

So between the end of the Anthrax and D-Day on Iraq was a time span of 18 months.

So...when, in that time period, was Saddam removed from the list of suspects?

He wasn't...the case is UNSOLVED
YOUR CITE.

"thanks for playing, but you lose"

There ya go....keep yammering your rightthink for the day...I think your eyes are already glazing over.

"You need to look into it yourself. Wilson did a crappy slipshod job investigating, which he admitted was done from the hotel pool, never submitted a written report and the Senate concluded that he was wrong about the attempts to buy Uranium."
True, but the fact still remains that Cheney et al were extracting revenge because somebody in the system who had access to intelligence was revealing the yellow-cake evidence was bullshit. It was ham-handed damage control, and by outing an undercover agent, they committed a crime in the process. Oops!


You really need to reconsider the facts again. After Wilson's article they said the press asked the administration what is up with Wilson's trip. Cheney asked people to look into why Wilson was selected as the one to go. It turns out that Wilson has been unemployed for a couple of years and had been out of government and was trying to get back in and that his wife had suggested him for the trip. Wilson has lied about this several times but it is clear that his wife was involved in selecting him. Is this not relevant for the public to know when assessing his OpEd in a prominent paper?

Anyway he does an half assed job, doesnt write up a report and that is that. President Bush gives the State of the Union speech in January (which includes more information than Wilson's article). Wilson does nothing until *July*. Why did he wait from January to July?

He wrote the article then because he could see that he was not going to get an appointed position in the Bush admin and he was soliciting a job from the Kerry camp- which he got as a result of the publicity from the article.

The unemployed hack Wilson has played this whole thing up into a book and a movie deal.

You can see the real story here:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/08/31/AR2006083101460.html

Mr. Armitage was one of the Bush administration officials who supported the invasion of Iraq only reluctantly. He was a political rival of the White House and Pentagon officials who championed the war and whom Mr. Wilson accused of twisting intelligence about Iraq and then plotting to destroy him. ....
Nevertheless, it now appears that the person most responsible for the end of Ms. Plame's CIA career is Mr. Wilson. Mr. Wilson chose to go public with an explosive charge, claiming -- falsely, as it turned out -- that he had debunked reports of Iraqi uranium-shopping in Niger and that his report had circulated to senior administration officials. He ought to have expected that both those officials and journalists such as Mr. Novak would ask why a retired ambassador would have been sent on such a mission and that the answer would point to his wife. He diverted responsibility from himself and his false charges by claiming that President Bush's closest aides had engaged in an illegal conspiracy. It's unfortunate that so many people took him seriously."

Libby was attorney for Marc Rich,
a billionaire commodity trader. He fled the USA in 1983 for tax evasion, and trading with Iran. Libby made $2,000,000 off Rich.

Would that be the same millionaire fugitive from justice who was pardoned by Bill Clinton?

(Hadn't forgotten that 'un either)

The Apprentice

Libby's Homoerotic/Beastiality/Incest Book

The book tells of travelers, caught in a blizzard and stranded in a remote mountain inn in Japan, circa 1903. Setsuo, the apprentice, is a male virgin inn-keeper pursued by Yukiko, who is a nymphomaniac. The wayfarers include a dwarf, children, homosexuals, and a pedophile, whose stay includes murder and deviant sexual acts.

The book is laced with scatology, drunkenness, and torture. Subjects like urine, turds, armpits, pubic hair, bestiality, and menstrual cycles, flow from this literary trash. Libby describes quivering inner lips, arching backs, firm breasts, and everything is moist.

One Scene:

"At age 10 the madam put the child in a cage with a bear trained to couple with young girls so the girls would be frigid and not fall in love with their patrons. They fed her through the bars and aroused the bear with a stick when it seemed to lose interest."

Another Scene:

Libby describes how one of the males entices a deer, stranded in a barn, by urinating in front of it's mouth, hoping to arouse it. Then we have the brothers of a dead samurai have sex with his daughter. The other guests discuss if they should f*ck the deer.

In This Scene:

Setsuo describes how the female plunges her head between his legs and devoured him in front of the other guests.

Picture Libby's Daughter Walking In

I have to imagine that Mrs. Libby put Scooter's literary den off limits to all the children. And how about that keyboard?
