Uh-oh! Guess what! Scooter ain't happy with how is trial be a goin'...So, why isn't this story in the news here, pray tell?
WASHINGTON (AP) - Attorneys for former White House aide ``Scooter'' Libby said Tuesday that Bush administration officials tried to blame him for the leak of a CIA operative's name to cover up for Bush political adviser Karl Rove's own disclosures.
Attorney Theodore Wells, in the opening statements of I. Lewis Libby's perjury trial, said Libby went to Vice President Dick Cheney in 2003 and complained that the White House was subtly blaming him for leaking Valerie Plame's identity to columnist Robert Novak.
``They're trying to set me up. They want me to be the sacrificial lamb,'' Wells said, recalling the conversation between Libby and Cheney. ``I will not be sacrificed so Karl Rove can be protected.''
Woo Hoo Hoo! Ain't that a shocking refrain, eh? Gee, and how many of us, all along, suspected Pig Boy of the foul deed? Mmmmm?
Yeah, I know, by the time we get around to getting Rove to the stand, WW3 will be about over....
