I am Scooter's seething sense of contempt

I. Lewis Libby has been indicted on 5 counts: 2 counts of perjury, 2 counts of making false-statements (to the FBI, pre-grand jury), and one count of obstruction of justice. The indictment can be viewed on the U.S. Dept of Justice website.

The perjury and false-statements related to Scooter's lying about how he first learned of Joe Wilson's wife's name. He learned this from Dick Cheney but testified that he learned the name from Tim Russert. Both Russert's and Matt Cooper's testimony contradicted Lewis' earlier testimony. Scooter has resigned. Fitzgerald will hold a news conference at 2pm EST. [Favourite caption for this AP photo: "Justice blind, Scooter lame."]
