Finally! Something! Libby indicted on 5 counts. Rove escapes at least for the moment. I confess to feeling excited now that at least one indictment has occurred. But then, as I listened to some of the comments, mostly by lawyers, that seemed to indicate that this would be all there was to it, I became temporarily depressed. Then I realized that I was watching CNN. There is no way this is going to be the end of it all. Indeed, this is merely the beginning. If Libby is indicted that means Cheney is also vulnerable. Libby would not have even gone to the bathroom without Cheney's knowledge. And it is clear that Libby got Plame's name from Cheney long before she was outed by Novak. They keep insisting there was nothing wrong about Cheney, Libby and others in the administration discussing Wilson and Plame. But they have not offered any explanation as to why they were doing this. Do they just sit around discussing CIA operatives and their husbands as part of their daily routine? Why were they interested in Wilson and his wife at this time?
Rove is not off the hook either. Might he be "person A" that was mentioned by Fitzgerald? And what about possible charges of conspiracy? There is no doubt there was in fact a White House Iraq Group that was involved in selling the war on Iraq. The people involved are well known. It is alwo well known that lies were told to lead us into this dreadful and unnecessary "war." Is all this simply to be dismissed? I don't think so. I don't believe that like the Gannon/Guckert business they will just be able to ignore this until everyone forgets about it. We are talking major war crimes here, not just homosexual hanky-panky in the White House.
They tried to distract us with the Miers business. And they will no doubt try to do the same by naming another controversial candidate for the Supreme Court. And, of course they will attempt to roviate Fitzgerald:

How about a new word?
Most, if not all of those who sometimes read this blog are probably unfamiliar with the name Vidkun Quisling. He was a Norwegian traitor who collaborated with the Nazis in Norway and became part of a puppet Norwegian government. Thus a new word was added to the English language - quisling. I suggest we add another new word to our language:
roviate v. to smear, slime, malign, denigrate, and attempt to destroy an opponent through the use of innuendo, rumor, slander, outright lies and any other despicable means available. Roviation works more effectively when done in collaboration with the major media.
They have already started on this but so far have had no success. Fitzgerald is 44 years old, unmarried, and no doubt fair game for their slanderous and outrageous attacks. Most say he is so clean they can't possibly get away with this. Frankly, I can't see why it would matter. If the bastards are guilty as hell (which I am personally sure they are) what difference does it make what Fitzgerald is or does? I think roviating has peaked and will no longer be as effective as it has in the past. The jig is up for Rove and the neocons. It just remains to be seen and Fitzgerald seems to be the right man for the job.
