Our Dear Leader President Bush has made numerous statements to the effect that the United States of America is at war with the forces of Islamofascism. Such as:
“Today, we’re fighting a new war to defend our liberty and our people and our way of life,”

“Some look at the challenges in Iraq and conclude that the war is lost and not worth another dime or another day,” —-December 19, 2005

Seems pretty clear to me. Rather than calling for ‘poor’ Scooter to be pardoned as many on the ReichWing and many in the corporatist media are doing I submit that Mr. Libby, traitor that he is, be woken up early, fed a decent breakfast and….
