BFFs: Scooter Libby & Dick Cheney


At least Scooter Libby dodged this bullet... Vice President Dick Cheney, an avid fan of weaponry

Now here's CNN's excellent summary:

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A federal jury Tuesday found I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, guilty on four of five counts in his perjury and obstruction of justice trial.

Libby was convicted of:

* obstruction of justice when he intentionally deceived a grand jury investigating the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame;

* making a false statement by intentionally lying to FBI agents about a conversation with NBC newsman Tim Russert;

* perjury when he lied in court about his conversation with Russert;

* a second count of perjury when he lied in court about conversations with other reporters.

Jurors, who deliberated for 10 days, cleared Libby of a second count of making a false statement relating to a conversation he had with writer Matt Cooper, formerly of Time magazine.

The rest of this article is here at CNN. The site also links to several excellent Libby story streams and off-shoot articles about the Libby trial and all that it means. If the trial backlinks to why Libby lied about outting Valerie Plame, we may yet see all the hunters get captured by the game.

Scooter Libby played by the code of the streets so he didn't snitch on Cheyney. I'm not sure I would have lied for him.

Scooter will regret this if Bush don't come through and get him out.
