Since Armitage admitted on day one of the investigation that it was he that had leaked her name, and since the CIA confirmed her employment over the phone to Novak (and I don’t think anyone can argue that the CIA is in the habit of outing their undercover agents over the phone), I have to ask what was Fitz investigating between the time he knew it was Armitage and the time he decided to hang Libby. Just what was he investigating all that time.

Fitz is a disgrace. The fact that he’s going after Blagojevich doesn’t change the fact that he is a disgrace.

I'm happy to see others are also aware of inconsistencies
surrounding Fitzgerald. It is not a revelation to FR members and there has been much written about the politicization of the CIA. That many insiders were very hostile to the President's policies, including the Plames, who worked for the Gore campaign, is not new. That Fitzgerald is a political operative is beyond question. Appointing Podesta to run the CIA is entirely consistent. That may be part of what was behind the restructuring of the intelligence agencies.

Fitz does seem to be a disgrace, and it may not be a ‘fact’ that he is going after Blagojevich. The supposed surveillance tapes may be the equivalent of Craig Livingston's FBI files. They may suggest a variant of “pay-to-play” along the line of “pay-to-stay”. That Fitz could be paid by our justice department to disable a very capable man, Scooter Libby, for two years, crippling his career and condemning him to some years in prison for a crime Fitz knew he didn't commit raises the question of why Fitz has not been charged? This is not about justice but about vicious political power plays, and I don't see how Fitz is on the side of truth and protection of The Constitution, which he swore to uphold and protect. Fie on G.W. Bush if he doesn't correct the misdeed. One must wonder what his enemies have on him.

I still shake my head in disbelief that this happened in my country. US v. Libby was a political show trial worthy of the old Soviet Union. Libby was guilty of nothing more than working in a Republican administration. It is disgusting how many pubbie’s lives have been ruined by rabid rat politics.

Yep Fitz is the Face of the disgrace of the USDOJ and Paulson/Bernake/Greenspan are the face of the disgrace of the Politically corrupt US Economic leadership...etc., etc. All is indicative of the disgrace of this country’s leadership. If not now then when do we fight for our freedom from this travesty?

I read somewhere that going after Libby was part of some personal vendetta, due to Libby’s role in lobbying for Marc Rich’s pardon.
