The Libby Verdict – Where’s The Meat?

Juror Explains Libby Verdict: They Felt He Was Fall Guy

This verdict could never bode well for the administration or for Republicans in general.  I think that is universally accepted here.  It will be trumpeted by MSM (look for Chris Matthews, Wolf Blitzer and especially Keith Olberman to exhibit permanent Cheshire Cat grins for at least 3 months) as the supreme Rove/Cheney gotcha of the year.   The really sad bit of this is the fact that it implicates neither for the original charge of actually leaking Plame’s ID.  But this Red Herring will be completely lost on the nutroots and MSM.

Details of the case, and also leading up to this case such as the disclosure that at least 9 sources (count ’em) told Libby about Plame being in the CIA will be entirely lost to the Maher and Pelosi camp, but they will simply redact their culture of corruption speeches anyway.  So much to-do over a woman with a desk job who never was under cover to begin with.

So where’s the meat you might ask?  Good question when you have the NY Times releasing the full nature of sensitive spook operations during war time without so much as a slap on the wrist.  No outrage from Olberman there.  Meanwhile Mr Libby gets paraded around because he gets his facts wrong about 9 different versions of a story that never was in the first place.  It never had anything to do with divulging the identity of an undercover agent, but a certain scorned ambassador, sent as it turns out, by means of his own wife (who just happened to run a desk at CIA) well – it had a lot to do with him.

Time for a follow up spread on Vanity Fair I guess.
