If there is one thing to remember in any case of law, never lie under oath. Never mind that no crime was committed - when you are asked a question you had better tell the truth to a federal prosecutor.

My problem with the whole event, nevermind that you evidently can't be prosecuted from lying about having sex in the oval office, is that the AP has already begun their subtle attempt at revising history.

The case brought new attention to the Bush administration's much-criticized handling of weapons of mass destruction intelligence in the run-up to the Iraq war.

It did? I thought the case concerned Joseph Wilson's lies about Iraq trying to acquire uranium yellowcake from Niger.

Collins, a former Washington Post reporter, said jurors wanted to hear from others involved in the case, including Bush political adviser Karl Rove, who was one of two sources for the original leak.

What? Karl Rove was never - and especially in a delusion of the AP - one of the "leakers" of Valerie Plame's non-secret identity. Richard Armitage is the leaker - and the leak went straight to Robert Novak. Why do you think no one else is going to be charged? No other crime was committed.

Bizarre, isn't it - how the AP can print a few subtle lies in an article of a politicized nature and get away with it. A kind of perjury in it's own right, eh?
