Begging for Libby's Pardon

By Bill Moyers
June 19, 2007

We have yet another remarkable revelation of the mindset of Washington's ruling clique of neoconservative elites-the people who took us to war from the safety of their Beltway bunkers.

Even as Iraq grows bloodier by the day, their passion of the week is to keep one of their own from going to jail.

Bill Moyers finishes his commentary with this:

"So it may well be, as The Hartford Courant said editorially, that Mr Libby is 'a nice guy, a loyal and devoted patriot...but none of that excuses perjury or obstruction of justice. If it did, truth wouldn't matter much.'"

According to the background scenario which no official source is denying so far as I know, Libby is guilty of deliberately (and successfully) blocking the investigation of top senior officials who, again deliberately, destroyed their own intelligence network for monitoring the proliferation of weapons which, according to these same officials, constitute the worst threat facing our nation.

In view of this accepted factual background, I would be appreciative if Mr. Moyers would define the notion of patriotism in such a way that Libby “may well be a loyal and devoted patriot.”

Oh, Mr. Moyers, but how could your forget the famous line from Libby-Miller exchange:
"Out West, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them".

Now we just were given a vivid demonstration of "aspens turning".
Marvelous, aint'it?
