Is the indication that Libby is a Cheney aide in the title really necessary? It seems like its trying to imply something about Cheney's involvement. --Wolfrider 22:25, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

The fact that Scooter is/was an extremely influential figure in US politics is why this is world news, (unlike, say, 'Devonshire man accused of being drunk and disorderly pleades not guilty') - so I personally believe it is relevant & does not imply that Cheney is guilty of the same thing Libby is accused of. :) --Mike

I'm with Mike (+ I can relate to the Devonshire man..I've been there..but it ain't news) Neutralizer 23:50, 3 November 2005 (UTC)
I expanded the article by bringing out more info from the second source. Neutralizer 19:33, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
Reinserted reference supported by SF Gate source. Neutralizer 15:47, 5 November 2005 (UTC)
I have examined the source twice more, , and have found no mention of presidential pardon anywhere within it. I have found no mention of Mr. Bush jr. except:
Libby's indictment has enabled Democrats to raise anew questions about the Bush administration's primary justification for invading Iraq
Bush told the nation on Jan. 28, 2003, that "the British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."
In short, there is no support for the statement:
President George W. Bush has not ruled out the possibility of granting a presidential pardon to Libby should he be convicted. Democratic leaders, however, have requested that the president do so.
And so I am removing it for a second time as unsupported by sources. - Amgine / talk 00:07, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
