TOM MAGUIRE has a lot of thoughts on the Libby indictment, including these:
However embarrassing it might be, the NY Times may be forced to confront the fact that Nick Kristof is an important part of this story, since Fitzgerald essentially dates the beginning of this story to Kristof’s May 6 column. The column was riddled with inaccuracies which Mr. Wilson has since disavowed – let’s see if the Times tackles this.
And, per the summary (p. 5), it will be a bit harder for Joe Wilson and his many defenders to sustain the notion that his wife was not involved with selecting him for this trip.
And that was hard already.
