Higher scoundrels

Now that one of the lesser scoundrels, "Scooter" Libby, has been convicted for lying about the outing of CIA undercover operative Valerie Plame, it is time to bring in for questioning by Congress his puppeteers, namely Vice President Dick Cheney and Karl Rove.

The American people need to know what role these higher ranking scoundrels, including the president, played in planning and implementing the crime. In the case of Vice President Cheney, there was abundant evidence revealed at trial that he was the mastermind behind the attempt to discredit Ambassador Joseph Wilson for putting the lie to the claims of President George W. Bush that Iraq had attempted to buy uranium from Niger.
