I think the one "not guilty" count got 99% of the coverage, while the four "guilty" ones just got a passing mention.

But after the Foley thing (where Fox labeled him a Democrat several times) people are watching out for these things and grabbing them when they come up.

Oh, I know. Fox is a disaster. I think their focus on the one Not Guilty is hysterical. I remember the Foley scandal headlines. Fox is such a tool.

I'm not totally up on the legalities. Is that the charge that might have most led back to Cheney or Rove? Do they have a reason for that particular focus or is this just the usual delusion, intellectual dishonesty or blatant misleading?

Regardless, I loved the headline.

I woudn't put it past him. I don't know if bold is the right word, though. Perhaps insane would work better.

But if the evidence shows that Saddam was trying to get uranium from Niger and that Plame was leaked by an opponent of neo-cons and Iraq war then it puts it all in a different position. The narrative of Wilson being punished for speaking truth to power doesn't gel with the events.

that's a misformulation of what went on here.

it isn't about Wilson; Wilson could have said that Saddam was breeding a race of half-man, half-ape humanoid soldiers, and if the WH sought to destroy him by violating national security and outing his CIA wife, that becomes the issue.

this isn't about Wilson speaking Truth to Power. this is about Wilson speaking, and the abuse of power that got him punished for doing so.

and, again, if they were right and Wilson was wrong, why didn't they just let it go and take some criticism? it was just a stupid op-ed, that's all.

But they did not out Plame because she couldn't be outed. There was no crime committed. This was not about the 'outing', because there was none.

This was about a bunch of people testifying against each other about lying, forgetting, etc...
