Did Bush commit a crime by pardoning Libby?
In his statement responding to the pardon of Libby, Joesph Wilson accused the President of using his pardoning power to commit a crime, that crime being obstruction of justice, since Bush himself is suspected of being the one who ordered the outing of Plame. Do you believe Bush has committed this crime?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
