One Down, Several More to Go
Scooter Libby was indicted today on five counts, including perjury and obstruction of justice.
So much for Bush's claim five years ago that his administration would "restore dignity to the White House."
Libby is the first indictment, the investigation is ongoing, with special focus on Karl Rove.
Watch: the White House will decline to comment on this indictment beyond Dick Cheney's terse, written response to Libby's resignation. He wrote his response because he is too cowardly to face questions from the media, that much is obvious.
They will use the ongoing investigation as their excuse.
That's how they will keep from answering questions to which the nation deserves answers.
If Bush was smart, he'd defuse this horrible threat to our national security by putting ALL the suspects yet to be indicted on administrative leave until the investigation is complete.
Neither Karl Rove nor Dick Cheney can possibly concentrate on their jobs at hand with these swords of Damacles dangling over their heads.
But Bush is not smart.
And Bush has no loyalty to the citizens of the United States. Justice to him means looking out for his cronies. May he soon pay for his blatant stupidity.
