The Ointment Of Justice...

will be applied in a judicious manner...

Trial of Cheney co-conspirator increases itching and discomfort for Bush administration
In an interview on the "Fox News Sunday" television program, Cheney called Libby "one of the finest individuals I've ever known."

Whatever the nature of Cheney's remarks, if he testifies, the very fact of his appearance would underscore how the trial has created a deeply uncomfortable moment for the White House. It is a problem not only because a former official faces serious charges, but also because the subject is connected closely with how the administration may have used flawed intelligence about Iraq to justify going to war. <

"I must return to the valley--a valley filled with literally thousand of Negroes in Alabama and Mississippi who are brutalized, intimidated, and sometimes killed when they seek to register and vote. I must return to the valley all over the South and in the big cities of the North--a valley filled with millions of our white and Negro brothers who are smoldering in an airtight cage of poverty in the midst of an affluent society."

The march is never over...

Go Fitzie and Team!!! Justice Bloggers are with you...all of the way!

What did you expect Cheney to say as Libby's information could cause Cheney to resign. Plans and favors have been offered for Libby to keep his mouth shut. Like must GOP there is a supposed loyalty and protect the President/Vice President at all cost. Fall on the sword if necessary. McCain was strong and honest but his loyalty to the Republican party was stronger. So he fell on the sword to save the Party even knowing it was wrong. The torture bill was another example of this. McCain knew what would happen to our troops as he was a POW and if it weren't for the international law he would be dead. But he went along with the Bush torture bill knowing that our troops would now be legally tortured if captured and never come home. Only God can judge the evil in man but others are now suffering because McCain gave his sole to Satan and followed Bush/Cheney plan of evil.

It is going to be very difficult, if not impossible, to separate the lies for going into Iraq with the lies that Scooter/Patooter told to cover up the original lies. If Judge Walton is indeed able to seat a jury of Libby's peers, I will be amazed! With only 29% of the American public still believing in these thieves, I would not expect them to all be living in DC.

It is my enduring hope that the whole bag of lies is about to be untied and unravelled, if not only during this trial, but with the investigations that are soon to come!

Le the games begin!!!!!

Has anyone figured out how we are going to keep abreast of the day's proceedings. Perhaps there will be transcripts released at the end of each day!

Hi Jackie....hope Peaches is doing well. Happy MLK Day to all....

"Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children." MLK

When the Justice Department and System starts treating the good ole boys and the poorest black men as equals will it be reality and true justice.

I only hope that this starts the lead in to the 911 lies and the architects of it. Cheney on the top of the list.

"The trial, expected to last at least a month, may serve as a stage for such intriguing issues as how the administration of President George W. Bush dealt with critics before going to war in Iraq, the changed relationship between journalists and senior government officials, and the question about the wisdom of using an independent prosecutor to investigate crimes in an administration.

Among the trial's highlights will be a likely appearance from Cheney, in what historians believe would be the first time a sitting vice president has testified in a criminal trial. Cheney would testify for the defense. He is expected to praise Libby as a public servant and attempt to clothe many of his actions in official vice presidential approval."


Funny how that works...covering for one another..isn't it?

Grandmanuk -
The Firedoglake and The Next Hurrah bloggers are sharing a press pass and my understanding is they'll be live blogging and posting a summary each day. I'm sure others will provide good analysis as well, and folks here might provide links to those as we come across them.

Fingers crossed here that my son will witness the U.S. justice system work! There's been too much corruption and incompetence in his short life but now he is paying attention. And of course, the stakes couldn't be much higher.

from new york times

cheney defends pentagon and CIA efforts to obtain the financial records of americans

he says a bank can refuse

he also says it doesn't violate civil rights

cheney says not illegal

he's says it's protecting the troops

i would just assume , if they want something, they ask

be alot easier than putting the bank to all the trouble
