Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald apparently won't be seeking an indictment against Karl Rove for his part in the Valerie Plame affair.
This seems like terrible news at first, but knowing how Fitzgerald operates, it might be a prelude to something even bigger. There is a remote possibility that Rove asked for a deal; his continued freedom in exchange for his testimony. Against who? That's the $64,000 question. Something tells me that this thing isn't over yet.
And until Patrick Fitzgerald himself gets in front of a mic and states that the investigation is over, there's still hope for justice. Christy Harden Smith over at Fire Dog Lake, who's a legal expert and one of the leading "Plameologists" on the net, has posted a detailed examination of the recent announcement here. She's still holding out hope.
Because we all know Karl Rove is guilty of something.
