As Cliff Kincaide correctly notes, Lewis "Scooter" Libby is charged with lying about telling the press their reports(based on Wilson's fables) were wrong.
The Washington Post's Pincus is still correcting his corrections of the Wilson fable published 2 1/2 years ago, The NYT's Kristof still hasn't come clean. And virtually all of the rest of the journos keep acting as if the SSCI Report (Wilson's story was a pack of lies), Butler Report (Iraq was most certainly seeking uranium in Africa and that analysis was not based on forged documents but on solid intel) and Silberman/Robb (the Administration did not manipulate the intel) reports didn't exist.
So here we have it folks: A kerfuffle about a liar whose wife was not a very covert agent and whose "outing" (contrary to The Nation's Corn's storyline) caused no damage.
Repeated government inquiries prove the Wilson story utterly false; the press keeps reporting the story and ignoring the evidence that three independent bi—partisan investigations said so; and someone gets indicted for lying about telling the press they were printing falsehoods.
Isn't that special?
Too bad there is no way to indict the press.
