It's really very tiring to hear the same nonsensical argument that the Libby apologists make. The one that is supposed to take the focus off of the real crime here. This whole Libby case is all about the lying liars that said Iraq was trying to buy yellow cake uranium from Niger to start a war. When Joe Wilson called Cheney and Bush on it---they attacked his wife and himself. Shuster knocks down the lie that the NRO's, Tucker and the beltway weenie circuit keep pushing. Wilson was right and they were wrong...

As Josh Marshall says:

From day one this story has been about official lies — corrupt power buttressed by fraud. Along the way it became a story about the president’s hireling commentators who lost their honor by becoming part of the fraud. What Wilson said was true. His attackers are all parties to the same lie. Don’t forget that.
