Plame case flickers back into the news

This just in off the wires. Libby's lawyers have thrown down their cards. They're planning to delay the trial past the 06 elections by issuing subpoenas to everyone in the media they can think of. Libby will attempt to take the focus off his own criminal activities by turning it indictment of the press and the debate will very likely turn to whether they should release their records or not.

This should be weird. It will be, as they say, tried in the media but the media will also be the defendants in the court of public opinion. One wonders what effect Judy Miller's incarceration will have on the way this one plays out?

Found you from a comment on Left of Center, Libby, and am adding you to my daily reads.

Keep it up. What this world needs is another good lefty female blogger.

Thanks Motherlode. Pretty nifty blog you got yourself there. Who sez there's no women doing great political blogging?

Looks like Scooter's defense involves throwing every damn source-protecting reporter in Washington into jail. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
