I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby = The Guilty Scapegoat

Basic Facts: There was an attempt at a cover-up of the illegal activity of outing a covert CIA agent for the purpose of discrediting her husbands report that went against the Administrations claim. A claim that was one of the reasons used to attack the sovereign nation of Iraq - without UN sanction -without proper troop levels - without proper equipment for the troops and at a cost of thousands of American's lives - hundreds of thousands of Iraq civilian lives- the creation of Millions of impoverished (and angry) refugees- and the creation of a bloody civil war.

Of all the crimes committed by this administration - this is one of the smaller- and only one man was charged which a crime that more than 23 others likely participated in- including the Vice President of the United States- Dick Chaney.
