  • EDITORIAL: Unfair blame

    When Hollywood decides a former White House aide is fair game for attack, facts don't come into play. History, however, cannot be so cavalier about the truth. The new movie "Fair Game" - based on the outing of CIA employee Valerie Plame Wilson during political battles concerning the war in Iraq - is anything but fair or honest. In depicting former vice-presidential chief of staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby as a sinister point man in a broad effort to destroy Mrs. Wilson's career while concocting a fraudulent case for the war, the movie perpetuates myths that improperly damage U.S. credibility.

  • Undoing the unreasonable

    Contrary to the outcries from leading Democrats in Congress and the self-righteous expression of shock from the husband of ex-CIA spy Valerie Plame, President Bush finally has brought some justice to the case of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby. By commuting Libby's utterly unreasonable sentence but leaving his $250,000 fine and two years of probation in place, the president also has put this victimless crime into perspective.
