I just picked up the paper. Commuting Libby's sentence? Are you kidding me? The man may have (and quite possibly did) compromised national security--yes, the same national security the Bush administration is harping on at every given chance--and now President Bush says the punishment was too "harsh." Never mind the punishment being faced by those at Gitmo (also guilty, or presumably, they haven't seen a trial or tribunal yet) who have comprised our national security. They can remain locked up 'til they shut the place now. But oh no, we can't have one of the Bush lovers in jail that would be an injustice. President Bush must have consulted Gonzo on this decision. God help us.
