To NO ONE'S Surprise, Libby's Lies Lead Straight To The Top

TruthOut's Jason Leopold & Marc Ash sez:

(F)ormer White House staffer I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby testified before a grand jury in 2004 that Vice President Dick Cheney instructed him to divulge portions of a then-classified report to New York Times reporter Judith Miller. Libby testified that Cheney said authorization to leak a section of the report had come directly from President George W. Bush, the court transcripts state.
Later, Libby says that when the president tells you to talk about a document, it is automatically declassified.
