ANALYSIS/OPINION:

This yuletide season, while we all huddle in our homes taking refuge from financial crisis and real goblins like Bernard L. Madoff, a man of decency remains inextricably outside the law, dressed up as a criminal, for reasons of political spite.

I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby is that rare species of faithful foot soldier who still believes in duty to God and country. He was skewered by a process that makes a mockery of justice.

As President Bush tidies up the loose ends of his administration, he is morally bound to right this wrong. As a matter of dignity, he must restore to Libby the right to normalize his life. Here is a man who became a lightning rod for the spite of the left, yet through it all, he merely maintained his call to duty — a duty for which he should be honored, not betrayed. Do the right thing, Mr. President. Set the record straight, via Article II of the Constitution, and send a message to all dedicated servants of future presidents that when they do the honorable thing, their commander in chief will not leave them to “hang out to dry.”
