Testimony: Cheney angered over envoy's column on war

Prosecutor says issue is key to Libby's focus on CIA agent's husband

Washington -- Vice President Dick Cheney was personally angered by a former U.S. ambassador's newspaper column attacking a key rationale for the war in Iraq, and he repeatedly instructed his former chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, to "get all the facts out" related to the critique, according to excerpts from Libby's 2004 grand jury testimony released late Wednesday by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald.

Libby also told the grand jury that Cheney raised as an issue that the former ambassador's wife worked at the CIA and that she allegedly played a role in sending him to investigate the Iraqi government's interest in acquiring nuclear weapons materials. That issue formed the basis of former ambassador Joseph Wilson's published critique. - R. Jeffrey Smith, Washington Post.

It is hard to figure out which is worse. The fact that we have a Vice President who feels that he is so far above the law that he can use classified national security information to smear a political foe - or the fact that nobody seems to care.

I failed to mention that Michael Castle thinks Dick Cheney is doing a great job.
