Valerie Plame and her husband, Joseph Wilson, have filed suit against VP Cheney, Karl Rove, and "Scooter" Libby. Man, oh man, does this couple have some balls!!! I'm predicting that at the very least, some idiot judge will throw out the case. At the very worst, Plame and Wilson, and their families, need to watch their backs (and fronts...) because, uh, unfortunate accidents can happen. It's pretty obvious what kinds of dangerous games they are playing here, on both sides. Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald "decided" not to file criminal charges against Rove. I may have missed something, but so far I have heard nothing about Cheney's legal entanglement in the issue. So far, Fitzgerald has only pursued legal action against Libby - the least politically important or protected of the three. The bush machine will protect Rove and Cheney, without a doubt. Libby is expendable. Let's see how expendable the current administration thinks Ms. Plame and Mr. Wilson are. It's interesting to note that Fitzgerald has charged Libby with perjury and obstruction of justice for lying in a grand jury and FBI investigation. But his admitted co-conspirators will not be charged. We already saw the contempt with which the New York Times reporter, Judith Miller was treated - and she was just a pawn. Plame and Wilson, in this little chess gambit, appear to be the rook and bishop, with Cheney, Rove, and Libby cornered in what appears to be checkmate... how will King George get them out of this one?
