Lies And More Damned Lies

Irvin "Scooter" Libby may go to jail for lying to a grand jury and obstructing an investigation into the outing of a CIA agent. Karl "Turd Blossom" Rove may yet be indicted for similar crimes.

Scooter’s boss is Dick "Vice" Cheney, a master of the art of lying to the American people. In December 2001, speaking on "Meet the Press" about a link between the lead 9/11 hijacker and Iraq, Vice clearly said "it's been pretty well confirmed". That wasn't true, as we know now and he knew then – but when confronted with his own words in a subsequent interview, Vice denied three times that he had said "pretty well confirmed."

Vice has been scowling in the background in this ugliness from the start. He also knew that Scooter was lying about both of their involvement for two years, and allowed White House representatives to repeat Scooter's lies to the world throughout that time.

Turd Blossom’s boss, George "Shrub" Bush, has told just as many lies as the thugs who, in theory, work for him. Unlike Vice, Shrub isn’t even a very good liar – except when he doesn’t know that he’s lying, which seems to be about half of the time.

Lying to a grand jury is a felony. Dozens, perhaps hundreds of lies were told to the American people in order to invade another country. Those lies caused the death of at least 30,000 human beings. Which is the higher crime? Who will be held accountable?
