I Call for Justice
by Clarice Feldman - March 7th, 2007 - American Thinker
I call for justice for Scooter Libby because he has had none in this ridiculous matter.
But at whose door do I stand to shout my curses?
Joseph Wilson and Valerie Plame who cooked up a series of lies to undermine the Administration in the middle of the war?
Shall I blame the judge who let the prosecution get away with introducing into evidence prejudicial news accounts of limited relevance or probative value while denying the defense an opportunity to fully make its case? Who permitted the prosecutor to make scandalous charges on his rebuttal -- for which he had not offered a shred of evidence and which went beyond the defendant's closing statement -- the last thing the jury would be allowed to hear.
Shall I blame the jury which seems to have been unable to find the pony so it reconstructed it out of flip charts and post it notes?
This entire process has been an outrage from beginning to end.
And it will remain an outrage. There is little choice but to acknowledge the ridiculous situation we are in. Nancy Pelosi appoints Jefferson and Murtha to positions of power in congress. George W. Bush fires the best U.N. Ambassador we have ever had.
The greatest example of how much bias existed in this process includes the outrageous comments of the Washintgon Post reporter (somehow allowed onto the jury in spite of the obvious bias) who came out screaming that they should have gone after Rove and Cheney. His most amazing quote? "I'm a political hack, a foaming at the mouth lib." Yes he is. So how was he allowed on the jury?
There is no hope for this nation when the majority backs commiecrats who are dedicated to crippling our military and shuns common sense as presented by intellectual giants like Thomas Sowell and Mark Steyn. This trial is an example of how bigoted and biased our courts have become. They tolerate a prosecutor who has long despised Libby, and yet he is not forced to recuse himself, and a juror who worked for a former employer known for its anti-Republican bias.
Do you honestly think this verdict is just?
