The Lost Scandal

I haven't commented on the Scooter Libbey trial, since I mostly consider it a great deal of politically motivated fuss about something comparatively unimportant.

However Robert Novak's new piece, ` The Lost Scandal' does a fairly good job of summarizing where the real scandal lies....and from someone who has firsthand knowledge.

The only other thing I would add is something that's not generally known....that Scooter Libbey and prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald have bad blood between them of long standing, dating back to some fencing over the Mark Ritchie case back in the days of the Clinton Administration.

That in itself should have been grounds for President Bush (at the very least)to name a different prosecutor.
