The evidence presented at Libby’s trial verifies what we already knew-the Bush administration was engaging in a campaign to both deceive the American people about Iraq and to discredit those who opposed them. The authoritarian mind set of many Bush-worshippers cause them to believe the most implausible excuses. They claim that Valerie Plame was not really covert, or that her identity was exposed by her own husband. They attribute statements to Wilson he never made, and then attack him when it is shown that these statements he never made are not true.
