The Libby verdict & Carnage in Iraq
Posted by Rosa Brooks

So Scooter Libby has been convicted on four out of the five charges against him (relating to obstruction of justice, making false statements to the FBI, and perjury). As prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald put it to the jury on Feb. 21, "There is a cloud over the vice-president.... there is a cloud over the White House."

True enough. But as the media plays up the inside-the-beltway drama element of all this (who lied to whom/is Libby the fall guy/will he be pardoned/will Fitzgerald run for office blah blah blah), let's not forget that the lies told by Scooter Libby had a very specific purpose: preventing the American public from understanding the truth about the pre-war intelligence on Iraq, and persuading Congress and the public to support the rush to war. It was those lies that brought us here and here.
