Joe Courtney on the Libby verdict

Rep. Courtney Statement on I. 'Scooter' Libby Verdict

WASHINGTON, DC - Representative Joe Courtney released today the following statement in response to the I. 'Scooter' Libby verdict:

"The jury verdict today emphatically confirms and condemns the pattern of deception and misinformation that has characterized the Bush-Cheney Administration over the last six years - particularly its handling of the war in Iraq. Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald deserves the gratitude of all Americans for his fearless pursuit of the facts and justice -even into the inner workings of the highest offices in the land."

The former aide to Vice-President Dick Cheney was found guilty today on four out of five counts of obstruction of justice and perjury relating to testimony Libby provided to a grand jury during the investigation of the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame.

Good work CT Bob! Don't know where you found this, but it's nice to see the blogs doing original reporting (as least as far as I can tell!).

Actually, it's a press release sent to me by Courtney's office; they're pretty good about keeping us informed!
