Right, we can't trust a site like newsbusters. They are hilarious.

They fight a "liberal media" by stacking conservative bias. It's funny, every editorial, starts with a statement bashing liberals. Yet it claims in it's mission statement that it exposes and neutralizes liberal bias. There's nothing netrualizing about that website. Sorry I even brought it up, if you want to discuss it more start another thread.

Because you've got both the IMG and URL brackets in there. It needs to be one or the other. If you just want to post a link to a picture on some other site, use URL brackets only. If you want to post a picture in here, save the photo, upload it to ImageShack or your Interference gallery or whatever you use, then enclose the resulting url in IMG brackets only.

Thanks Yolland. I guess it was automatically putting the URL bracket in when I typed in the http://....

This is a notoriously "tough on crime" judge which...George Bush appointed. So you appoint a judge to the bench due to his credentials of precisely this: issuing out sentences which are tough, while being fully within his discretion.

The justice system does not work to deal with everyone in the same way. You and I could commit the same offence, be tried for the same offence and have different judges impose different sentences, where there is a min/max guideline. This is what this judge did. And he was appointed for that reason, which is what makes this all the more hilarious.

So now people whine because the sentence was for 6 months longer than the median. Clearly the response to that is to erase the sentence entirely.

Facts don't go over too well in this thread.

Full or nothing.

Bush finding a sentence excessive... clearly some unique event.

legal technicality may wipe away Libby's probation, too


Quote:
Bush eliminated Libby's 2½-year prison term and left in place his two years of supervised release. But supervised release – a form of probation – is only available to people who have served prison time. Without prison, it's unclear what happens next.

U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton posed the question to Libby's attorneys and to Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald: Does this mean Libby won't actually be required to serve supervised release? Should he just have to report to probation officials as if he spent time in prison?

The law, Walton said in court documents, “does not appear to contemplate a situation in which a defendant may be placed under supervised release without first completing a term of incarceration.”

For now, it appears Libby is in legal limbo. Walton gave both sides until Monday to respond.

The scandal is Cheney ordering a leak of a non-covert agent's name, you mean?
LINK- Plame was 'covert' agent at time of name leak

Quote:
WASHINGTON - An unclassified summary of outed CIA officer Valerie Plame's employment history at the spy agency, disclosed for the first time today in a court filing by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald, indicates that Plame was "covert" when her name became public in July 2003.
Funny how those sympathetic to Scooter are the least informed.

Alter, anyone?
FYM can be figured out by reading, posting isn't a prerequisite.

It's as clear as day.
