Taken Down By a Guy Named Scooter

(Via Fark)
I wonder how far this will go. I think it's been clear that Bush has been steadily weakening. His base is disappointed in him, and his opponents have finally been getting their act together.
Libby, 55, testified in 2003 that he provided reporter Judith Miller with information from a classified National Intelligence Estimate after being told by Cheney that Bush "specifically had authorized" him to "disclose certain information in the NIE." Libby also testified that Cheney specifically directed him to speak to other reporters about information in the classified NIE (which addressed Iraq's purported weapons of mass destruction programs) as well as a cable authored by Plame's husband, former ambassador Joseph Wilson.

It sounds like this is getting closer and closer to the Oval Office.

Update: Both DailyKos and Atrios have commented on this now.
