Scooter Libby Indicted

Another brick fell out of the impenetrable wall surrounding the Bush White House today. Vice President Cheney's chief of staff was indicted on five counts of obstruction of justice, perjury, and making false statements in the "Plamegate" investigation.

Chief White House political strategist Karl Rove remains under investigation, but has not yet been charged with any crimes.

Discussing an undercover CIA operative with reporters as a means of political revenge against her husband because he exposed dubious claims made by the administration — something Libby and Rove have admitted they did — is utterly beneath contempt.
