Popcorn Time! Libby tapes to be released

I see many juicy tidbits concerning White House lies in your future...

Audio recordings of former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby's secret grand jury testimony will be released publicly after they are presented at his trial, the judge at Libby's trial ruled Monday.

In a victory for the news media, U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said he had little choice but to make them public under the law as applied in the federal court system in Washington, D.C, even though he has concerns about releasing the recordings while the case is under way.

Libby is charged with perjury, obstruction and lying to the FBI in an indictment that focuses in part on his statements to a federal grand jury investigating the leak of the CIA identity of Valerie Plame.

If this is the precedent, I hope they have to enter Cheney's lying, err, testimony to the Grand Jury as evidence in this case as well. heh

The more witnesses' Grand Jury testimony tapes are entered as evidence, the better picture we will get as to the inner workings of the propaganda machine that brought us to an illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq.
