Did Karl Rove set up Scooter
Libby?  Does it matter?

Yesterday, Blawgletter marveled at Scooter Libby’s apparent combination of an "I forgot" defense to a perjury charge with a "Karl Rove framed me" defense.  See here.  The two seemed, um, inconsistent if not at war.

This morning we read in a NYT article that Mr. Libby’s lawyer "did not, however, fully explain the connection between an effort to protect Mr. Rove and the actions that led to Mr. Libby’s indictment."  That strikes Blawgletter as a bit of an understatement. Perhaps he didn’t because he couldn’t?
