Bush will Pardon Libby within six weeks
Wednesday, 20 June 2007 11:21
by Allen L. Roland

The deal between Cheney and Libby was made some time ago and itisthis ~ if Libby was indicted by Fitzgerald, Cheney would guarantee his pardon by Bush andLibbywould never spend a day in prison. The clock is running...

It is common beltway knowledge that Libby took the rap for Cheney and that this administration is, in essence, a Dick Cheney administration with Bushserving as its oblivious cheerleader.

As such, it is just a matterof when ( notif ) before Bush ( who answers to Cheney ) will pardon Libby and it most likely will be during the July Independence day recess or the Summer Congressional recess in early August ~ which is when most ofthe Cheney/Bushdirty work is done ( Bolton appointment to the UN is a classic example )

That gives theWhite Houseplenty of time to build their pardon case~for the prospect of Cheney's chief of staff in the clinker ~ as visible evidence of this corrupt administration's abuse of power ~ would be too much for these arrogant moral cowards to face.

The pressure to pardon Libby will come from outside led by the neoconpipe organTHE WEEKLY STANDARD.Peter Baker writes in the Washington Post last week of their strategy ~ The Weekly Standard followed with a cutting article accusing Bush of abandoning Libby: "So much for loyalty, or decency, or courage. For President Bush, loyalty is apparently a one-way street; decency is something he's for as long as he doesn't have to take any risks in its behalf; and courage — well, that's nowhere to be seen. Many of us used to respect President Bush. Can one respect him still?"

Bush will be seen, or spun, as bowing to the pressure from within his party to do the compassionate thingand pardon Libby ~ while, in reality, the decision has already been made and only the date remains a question mark.

Meanwhile U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton isrightfullyholding the line on prison time ~ as the Center for American Progress reports.
