“Let’s fuck Libby”

Just a thought-
what if all of these meetings between Judith Miller and John Bolton and the coterie of insiders were all just negotiations to figure out who was going to take the fall for the Plame link? The possibility has been raised that the Plame leak was a coordinated attack to push back against critics of not only the administration’s policies, but also the complicity of the NY Times in building the (false) case against Iraq.

I mean, did Scooter Libby actually grant Judith Miller permission to blow his cover or did Karl Rove grant it for him?

Just a thought.

  1. I agree that Libby is the scapegoat. Or at least a distraction from Rove. There won’t be so much outrage in middle America if there are two names and the word “conspiracy” floating around.

    But I don’t undestand this:

    The possibility has been raised that the Plame leak was a coordinated attack to push back against critics of not only the administration’s policies, but also the complicity of the NY Times in building the (false) case against Iraq.

    Why would they push back against the complicity of the NYT?

  2. Why would they push back against the complicity of the NYT?

    It was against CRITICS of the complicity of the NYT.

    Wilson was as critical of the media coverage as he was of the policy.
