Breaking news: Pot calls kettle black!

I just love this part:

Melanie Sloan, the executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, who is representing the Plame and her husband Ambassador Joe Wilson in a civil suit against Libby and other top Bush administration officials, slammed the decision on behalf of the Wilsons.

“First, President Bush said any person who leaked would no longer work in his administration. Nonetheless, Scooter Libby didn’t leave office until he was indicted and Karl Rove works in the White House even today,” Sloan said in a statement sent to RAW STORY. “More recently, the vice president ignored an executive order protecting classified information, claiming he isn’t really part of the executive branch. Clearly, this is an administration that believes leaking classified information for political ends is justified and that the law is what applies to other people.”

Melanie Sloan and the Wilson should be ashamed but of course they won't be. This entire fiasco was caused by the Wilsons to start with. Their manipulations and lies. Then this investigation into the non-leak whereas Fitzgerald knew from the get-go who released Plame's name to the press but he soldiered on anyway until he was able to get someone for something. No matter what. Then a DC (what do you expect) jury actually convicted Libby of the crime of perjury for mis-remembering something that happened 4 years earlier. The circus just never ends.
