The Power of Libby

From Slate:

Cheney raised a lot of eyebrows in 2001 when he named Libby to be both his national security adviser—a spot for which Libby was certainly qualified—and his top domestic political adviser—a job for which he possibly was not. It was an astonishing, and some people said, unprecedented amount of power for a single staff member. Libby also managed to grab the high-ranking title of assistant to the President and a seat on the National Security Council, not to mention his own CIA intelligence briefing every morning, just like his two bosses.

Isn't it amazing how one person can have so much power? And look what a stellar guy he turned out to be! May he rot in jail for a looooooong time...and hopefully he will have company.

Of course Fitgerald wouldn't say that he suspected Libby was being malicious when he outed Plame...that remains to be proven.... but given what we know about this administration, aren't the cards laying face up on the table?

And didn't Bush say he would fire anyone that was involved in the leak?
