Scooter Libby found guilty

The former Chief of Staff to US Vice-President Dick Cheney has been found guilty on four counts of obstructing justice, lying and perjury.

This is the good thing in a democracy – no one is above the law, no matter how powerful.

Somewhat ironically no-one has ever been charged in relation to the original question of leaking the identity of CIA staffer Valerie Plame – probably because no crime was committed. But as is often the case an attempt to cover up is what brings people down.
