Former vice presidential aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby acknowledged he may have discussed with Vice President Dick Cheney whether to tell reporters that a prominent war critic's wife worked at the CIA, an FBI agent testified Thursday.Gosh! Golly, Gee Whiz....
Agent Deborah Bond's brief description of Libby's acknowledgment was about the only new information disclosed on the day. Otherwise, Libby's perjury trial was devoted mostly to dealing with vigorous and repeated defense efforts to exclude evidence that Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald called "the guts of our case."
U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton accepted some defense arguments and rejected others during hours-long debates held outside the jury's presence.

I feel so sorry for the kids over at the NRO trying to duck the big bullet about,
Why did Ari Fleischer Get An Immunity From Prosecution Deal????and now we have to deal with the scary thought that what if Dick FORGOT that the law in america is THE LAW and that the VP really should not be advocating the commission of a FELONY!!!!
IF there was no criminal conspiracy to worry about???
Oh hold it, what if the VP is no longer capable of telling when upholding the law is even a relevant functional notion in the coolio period of this whole new era....
OR is that the REAL 'back story' about the mooninites attacking Boston??? Hum???
