Mr. Irving Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Jr.

In the run up to the War on Iraq, President G. W. Bush and his administration claimed that Iraq was developing nuclear weapons of mass destruction. As evidence at that time the President told the public that Uranium yellowcake from Niger was transported to Iraq for refinement to use in weapons. There were even a series of forged Nigerian documents that were "leaked" to the press. But when Ambassador Joe Wilson spoke up saying that there was no evidence "yellowcake pipeline" or of any such weapons of mass destruction, his wife was attacked by the Bush administration. New York columnist Robert Novak, while writing on the choice of Wilson for the Niger mission, disclosed that Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, worked for the CIA. This disclosure of classified information was a clear breach of our national security

Outing Plame as an operative was disastrous to U.S. National Security, driving the network of African informants underground, and drying up sources of information around the globe. Agents now realize that they can not trust the administration to keep their identities secret, and they try to factor in the new political forces at play, potentially undermining our ability to gather critical information about any real security threats.

This treasonous act was eventually investigated and traced back to Karl Rove, President G. W. Bush's political advisor, and the only way to keep Rove and Vice President Dick Cheney from testifying under oath for the Grand Jury was to offer up a scapegoat, enter Mr. Irving Lewis Libby.

"Cheney 'Authorized' Libby to Leak Classified Information"
Libby "testified to a federal grand jury that he had been 'authorized' by Cheney and other White House 'superiors' in the summer of 2003 to disclose classified information to journalists to defend the Bush administration's use of prewar intelligence in making the case to go to war with Iraq, according to attorneys familiar with the matter, and to court records," - Murray Waas reported February 9, 2006, in the National Journal.
