I'd like to take a moment of your time to praise the sensational analysis and commentary on the trial of Lewis "Scooter" Libby which is being provided over at linked site Just One Minute and to especially praise the contributions of a couple of the contributors/commentators here. They know who they are. I hope you're doing okay, Syl. You're missed.
My recollection is that I happened upon Mr. Maguire's site while checking links provided in this post and the associated comments, but, if so, I'm not sure how. I did stumble upon it somewhere around 18 months ago and from time to time since I've gone back to find out what's happened lately.
I stand by my 7/12/05 comment:
I think I've only commented on this subject that once a few weeks ago when the Supreme Court declined their invitation to become involved. I think it's because I've always thought the proverb that best applies is:
If you lie down with dogs, you'll rise with fleas.
Plenty of dogs, if not a crime, here. Not much that could happen to many of the principals—surely Wilson, Plame, Rove, Novak, and Miller—wouldn't be their own stupid fault.
I do have a couple of additional thoughts after reviewing opening statements.
I did not include Libby in that list of principals back on 7/12/05 because I didn't know much about him. Had I, I would have included him.
I hope he's acquitted though I don't think Fitzgerald seriously overstepped in indicting him.
The proverb/aphorism that best applies, upon a better understanding of what the regular government employees were thinking and doing, might be: Success has many fathers, failure is an orphan.
No points for guessing what the failure was. Some here still don't think it was a failure.
