Libby indicted for losing at 'Telephone'?

The report isnt in yet, but most sources say Libby will be indicted for giving false statements in testimony during Fitzgerald's investigation.
{No links because that's everywhere}

Which causes one to think about how often we can recall exactly what went on in a conversation occuring months or years before.
While we must assume that there's evidence pointing to Libby KNOWINGLY making those statements, that won't be totally clear until trial, if there is one.

But there's a bigger issue at play... the Bush Administration has taken heat from the left, since day one, about it's 'secrecy and gamesmanship'.. and where will the charges come from? From Bush Administration talking to the press.

How much easier to just adopt a strict 'no comment' rule. On ANYTHING... cause you never know what's gonna come back and bite yer ass.

Summary: You can't look silly playing 'Telephone' if you refuse to play in the first place.
