He had proven his loyalty in that he had shown his willingness to do whatever he was told to do ever loyally. The war on Iraq was the ultimate test for the DC crowd and Tim helped make it happen. Hillary did too and that is why the establishment tried so hard to help her out of the spot she got herself into with that kid from Illinois but sometimes the system fails and loyal members have to be cast off.
14. Must have had high friends in the Pentagon...so they broke the rules for the funeral...

I wonder if this has ever been done before. I know Reagan didn't serve but it was done for him. Maybe because he was a governor? As you point out...what did Tim ever do to deserve such a high honor ...unless it was to serve in "another way."
28. "Starting off with a Military Honor Guard! And Russert never served...." DO WE KNOW THAT?
The funerals of EX-SPIES are OFTEN attended by the heads of the military, potentates, principalities and powers of this world. They all but openly brag about how "close" the deceased was to the REAL halls of power -- the security industry and in this case, the public information branch
(see also Woodward, Bob.)
Don't believe me? Google Patrick O'Brien and ask yourself why all those military guys attended his funeral and all his books referenced espionage and connect the dots why he was so loved by generals and hawks.
and with the Military Honor Guard -- that kind of cinches it for me. This whole thing reminded me alot of "Charlie Wilson's War". This would explain a lot of what so weirdly has been going on since Friday. It also reinforces what has already been written about Operation Mockingbird.
The day he showed up at court in the Libby trial, getting out of the car on a pair of crutches (after Libby had done the same thing), I knew right then, he was part and parcel. There were never any more questions for me about him after that. He was right smack dab in the middle of the entire mess.
