The claim comes from Lewis “Scooter” Libby, the former chief-of-staff to Vice-President Dick Cheney. Mr Libby is facing trial for allegedly obstructing an investigation into a different leak.

    This is classic Rove. Set up a patsy to point the finger all the way to the top, then ridicule them in the news.

  6. Yeah, Cthulhu in 2008!
    Vote Cthulhu and he’ll eat you last!

    This is nothing. You people should look on infowars.com or comtrails.com . There are worst things happening.

    Infowars? Man, I’d completely forgotten about that site. The guy who started it up still has a conspiracy show on the Austin local access channel.
