WASHINGTON - Finally agreeing to testify, New York Times reporter Judith Miller's grand jury appearance throws a damaging spotlight once again on a White House whose credibility has been undermined in the criminal probe into the leak of a covert CIA officer's identity.
Disquieting? Consider our last three presidents, whether Republican or Democrat, attended Yale and, not coincidentally, the “terror expert” governing Iraq , Paul Bremer III, is another Yale insider. Former CIA Director James Woolsey, who lauded the approach of "World War IV," John Bolton and Lewis Libby, all Yale.
Libby graduated from Yale University in 1972, where one of his professors was Paul Wolfowitz and from Columbia University's law school in 1975
Irving Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Jr. (born August 22, 1950) is a lawyer and Chief of Staff to Dick Cheney, Vice President of the United States as well as the Vice President's assistant for National Security Affairs.
Libby was a founding member of the Project for the New American Century. He joined Paul Wolfowitz, William Kristol, Robert Kagan, and others in writing its 2000 report entitled, "Rebuilding America's Defenses - Strategy, Forces, and Resources for a New Century."
Libby co-authored the draft of the 'Defense Planning Guidance' with Wolfowitz for then-Defense Secretary Dick Cheney in 1992.
The investigation of Rove stops when they find the source of the leak. Libby is doing what a good foot solider does, he's falling on his sword to protect Cheney, and more importanly, Karl Rove.
If he's prosecuted, Libby will be well taken care of in the private sector.
