Plame case results so far...

A followup up to this post

Well there you have it. Scooter Libby has been indicted for one count of obstruction of justice, two counts of making false statements and two counts of perjury.

At last the waiting is finally over. Now we just have the joy-oh-joy of the post-indictment analysis and the countdown to a trial. This story will not die and I imagine that lots of people from both sides of the ailse are going to say fatuous things that make them look stupid before it is over. Speculation will be rife. Pundits have wet dreams over stories like this. I bet Pat Buchanon could have an extension built on his house from the money he will claw in for numerous appearances as more discussion of the second-term blues are held on the airwaves. Now what will Robert Novak tell us...

Will this lead to a major investigation into the decisions leading up to the Iraq war; a massive expose of facts previously unknown? Well, we shall see, but don't hold your breath.
