POLITICS AS USUAL | CHENEY’S RIGHT HAND MAN SENTENCED TO 30 MONTHS IN PRISON
The man known as Cheney’s Cheney, I. Lewis Libby, is headed to prison. A 30-month sentence has been handed down for lying to a grand jury and F.B.I. agents who were investigating the outing of C.I.A. operative Valerie Plame. To add insult to injury, Federal Judge Reggie B. Walton also fined Mr. Libby $250,000. I, for one, do not feel the slightest bit of sympathy for this warmonger, he was an essential part of the clique that orchestrated and executed this disastrous war that has led to almost 4,000 dead American soldiers as well as countless Iraqi causalities. His lawyer, Theodore V. Wells Jr, asked the Judge to place his client on probation, or at the very least place him under home confinement or in a halfway house, rather than send him to the big house. One thing is for certain, with a nick name like Scooter, if he ends up spending anytime in prison it won’t be pleasant. And that is as it should be. Good riddance!!!
