Not About Scooter, it's the war lies, Stupid
If you check out the major media, you would think the commuting of the jail sentence is all about whether a Vice-presidential aide should go to jail or not. But when President Twig commuted the prison sentence of Paul Wolfiwitz protege I. "Scooter? Libby, Jr. , son of an investment banker, it wasn't about whether a child of privilege would again make a mockery of justice. Although, it is easy to make that case.
No, it is really about the cover-up of the lies that got us into an incredibly expensive and scandalous war. When Joe Wilson revealed in a New York Times op-ed piece just a few of the lies related to the claim that Iraq had and was building weapons of mass destruction, the revelations could have derailed an unjustified and illegal war.
Most of us are convinced the White House directed the attacks on Wilson and his CIA wife and that Scooter was just the errand boy. But the errand boy in jail could sing to save his own butt. Commuting the sentence keeps a lid on the truth from coming out about Wilson-gate. So where is a Deep Throat? How long will it take?
If you listen to today's media, Scooter had nothing to do with the Iraq War. We need to keep reminding ourselves we got lied into a war and they are still covering that up. That is why Bush still has a 30% approval rating. Or is it now 27%. If the truth came out, it would be 2%.
