Scooter Libby gets found guilty of "obstruction of justice" so the White House can breathe easier for a little while now. The "Buck" stopped with Libby and it did not go higher. What a difference of Character between the current administration and another one years back that was caught with their hands in the cookie jar(Iran-Contra). At least Reagan looked into the camera and said, "The buck stops with me." End of story. Oliver North and John Poindexter were the scapegoats back then nonetheless, they found very lucrative jobs after giving their testimony to Congress. While we all just went "wow"
Once again we say "wow"
No one in this administration takes responsibility for anything. They would much rather throw the expendable "career politicians" into the fire. People like Libby or Army Maj. Gen. George W. Weightman who know when to throw in the towel and be rewarded afterwards with a great job with Haliburton or other company friendly with Bush and Co.
So, Cheney and Bush can relax for now since they will more than likely pardon Libby. His conviction may also be thrown out in appeal as it happened with Poindexter and Oliver North years ago and we are left saying, "wow"
