Uhm ... he was found guilty on 4 out of 5 counts.
Count number 3 was for "making false statements to the FBI", for which he was found not guilty.

The jury rejected Mr. Libby’s claims of memory lapses as it convicted him of four felony counts: obstruction of justice, giving false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and committing perjury twice before the grand jury. The 11-member jury acquitted Mr. Libby on an additional count of making false statements to the F.B.I.
