People understand the Libby indictment (LTTE's from home)
Advertisements [?]
In the Denver Post today:

Indictment of Cheney adviser I. Lewis Libby in CIA name leak

Now that I. Lewis Libby has been indicted for lying to federal investigators and to the grand jury, only one question remains: Why? Joseph Wilson could prove the White House reason for going to war was a lie. Consistent with a strategy of fear and control, it was more important to discredit him than to honor the truth. There were no weapons of mass destruction. Bush has lied repeatedly to the American people. And more than 2,000 military personnel are dead because of his lie. Bush, Cheney and Rove should be brought before an international court for war crimes.

Cristy Holden, Pagosa Springs

...

I hope that all of Congress is taking the Fitzgerald investigation seriously and will take all necessary actions to ensure that our country will not again see actions taken by American political officials against CIA agents or other security people due strictly to adverse political philosophy.

Whether Democrat or Republican, it is the responsibility of Congress to ensure no sabotaging of our security people occurs by our own government. They take their lives into their hands often enough without having to worry about being outed by an extremist administration - and for the pettiest of reasons, that of "getting even."

We are seeing a most serious and dangerous situation unfold. This is not just sex carried on indiscreetly and stupidly by consenting adults; these acts could affect the security and safety of our nation and the lives of some of our most vulnerable government people. The punishment for all the guilty parties must be such that it sends a clear and determined message to current and future administrations that the rule of law applies to all, including the powerful, regardless of their position.

John Ruckman, Lakewood

...

Those who think the indictment of I. Lewis Libby resolves something should remember that in this country people are presumed innocent until they confess under torture.

Paul Brown, Denver
