The Libby Case
This case is extremely important. Here's why:
1) It shows how highly respected journalists are stooges for power.
2) It shows how the US government will blantantly lie (nothing new here but it's a very visible case) to further its bloody imperial aims and then sacrifice their best friends and colleagues to save their own asses (Bush, Rove and Cheney).
3) The nationalist pose of the powers that be is just that a pose. Why? Because even CIA agents will be outed and sacrificed, along with their fellow spooks, if they are seen as in the way of a partisan or imperial aim.
