Thought of the Day
So Lewis Libby is found guilty of four felony counts out of five. Put the name of Dick Cheney in place of this "Scooter" to understand the verdict. I am a citizen of the Third, maybe 10th, World and I don't understand American justice. Cheney led a war party responsible for the death of 650,000 Iraqis but gets charged, via Libby, for making false statements and obstructing justice. It is like a criminal who shoots dead a woman in the street and is tried for carrying an unlicensed gun. The war party killed not one but thousands of women and children and I am waiting for the day when members are tried for the more serious crime of murder rather than syphoning to Haliburton Iraq's reconstruction funds.
