However, there’s a remedy close at hand. As this NRO editorial concludes:
President Bush should pardon Libby, and do it now.I have to agree. In general, though, Libby’s case does have a familiar ring to it:
- Martha Stewart convicted of lying to prosecutors in declaring her innocence of a crime (insider trading) for which she was never charged.
- Conrad Black now being pers-, er, prosecuted for a long list of ‘crimes’ for which there is, at best, dubious evidence.
The American justice system seems to be making a mockery of itself. Someone needs to take a closer look at how the special prosecutor does his job.
