Throw Another Jew on the Fire

My theory of the bizarre Scooter Libby prosecution is that Patrick Fitzgerald needed a Jew- excuse me, a neocon- to throw to the “Jews got the dumb gentiles to go to war on phony intelligence for the sake of Israel” crowd.

Tom Maguire shows how the faulty memories and contradictory notes of a legion of journalists and government officials would seem to render a guilty verdict all but impossible from a jury of 12 sane people. (Which isn’t to say that a jury of 12 D.C. Democrats wouldn’t convict.)
