The fallout from the CIA leak case

November 01, 2005

Re "Our 27 months of hell," Opinion, Oct. 29

The president on Friday said he had such important things to do, but he and the vice president took time to praise the service of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby to the country. I didn't hear one word about the service of former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV and his wife, CIA officer Valerie Plame, to the same country. The reason for the lies and obstruction performed by Libby and whoever else helped was the 2004 election. If this investigation had been completed before the election, no amount of voter fraud would have won the election for the administration, and they knew it.

Wilson says: "It is tempting to feel vindicated by Friday's indictment of the vice president's chief of staff." I hope that Wilson does not give in to this temptation. Libby was not indicted for "outing" Plame; he was indicted for lying about it. Apparently, if Libby had said, "Yeah, I told Novak about her. So what?" he may not have been indicted.

If the Bush administration had expended as much time and effort gathering information on the merits of invading Iraq as it spent investigating and attacking Wilson and Plame, the world would be a better place. God knows who else in this corrupt administration should be in jail.

There may not be a cancer in the White House, but there sure is a stench. Vice President Cheney, Karl Rove and Libby all may have taken part in using the press to smear Wilson and Plame. The only question is whether the president knew about it. If the president knew about it, then he is part of this odorous conspiracy. If he did not know, then he is third in command.
