Fitzmas: Libby indicted

Shocking no one, Scooter’s going down.

Patrick Fitzgerald, the special prosecutor in the CIA leak probe, plans to ask members of the grand jury to indict I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff

This makes it the first time in 130 years that a member of the White House staff has been indicted.

Honesty. Integrity. Honor.

Conservative Criminals.

Update: here’s the indictment (single-page text and pdf version). 5 counts for Scooter: obstruction of justice, two false statements, and two perjuries.

Libby has resigned. Why are you still protecting “Official A” Cheney, Scooter?

Lest we forget, this is not about perjury, this is about our government taking us into an illegal war through lies, deception, and subterfuge, and then covering the whole thing up. This is a small step toward addressing that, but it is both insufficient and too late. This is one of the darkest periods of our nation’s history.

I guess in such times, even a pinprick of light can look like a blazing sun.

Also, in an attempt to be less Xian-centric, the next two indictments will be under the headings of Fitznnukah and Fitzaa. I like Fitzaa. Needs an exclamation point and a few more a’s, though – Fitzaaaaaa!
