Scooter Libby was persecuted for far less by outing Valerie Plame as a CIA agent.
Libby was prosecuted for making false statements to the FBI about a non crime.
Still can’t figure that one out.
It was Richard Armitage that outed Valerie Plame. He worked for Colin Powell in the past. Colin Powell knew that it was Richard Armitage. Neither Armitage nor Powell said a damn thing and let Libby "hang in the wind."
At one time I had great admiration for Colin Powell. After that incident and even prior to his support for Obama, I knew he was political pond scum.
