Joe Wilson on Scooter's Dropped Appeal

Here's what Ambassador Joseph Wilson had to say to the news that our boy Scooter has chosen not to appeal his recent conviction:

By dropping his appeal, Mr. Libby has finally abandoned the pretense that his conviction was a miscarriage of justice. Mr. Libby's decision suggests, however, that he may have received word that President Bush plans to pardon him shortly. Of course, a pardon is completely at odds with the president's earlier claim that he would not tolerate anyone on his team leaking a covert CIA officer's identity, but this is the kind of inconsistency representative of this administration. Given the White House's extensive and continuing efforts to cover up how and why Valerie Wilson's identity was leaked to the press, the only way that remains to get at the truth in this sordid matter is through our civil suit against Libby, Vice President Cheney, Karl Rove, and Richard Armitage.
Go get 'em, Joe! Even though everyone knows that it's pretty much a done deal that Baby Doc is going to pardon the slimy little fucker, all props to you and Valerie for continuing to hold this maladministration's feet to the fire for their treasonous actions. We'll be watching this snake its way through the courts and cheering for you every step of the way.
