Scooter goes down

Just a quick note. I am as much against the neo-cons as anyone I know. And it' great to see one of them convicted of something. But in all honesty this case did nothing for the cause of No More Wars for Israel.

Scooter Libby (real name Leibowitz) was not convicted of sending Americans to die for Israel. He was convicted in a political trial of a crime that only came about because of an investigation - not of the issue for which he was investigated. All this does is reaffirm what everyone should already know. If the feds want to talk to you - it's because they want to convict you of something and you haven't committed a crime yet. The job of the prosecutor is to make you commit one.
