I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby was Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff when he was sentenced to 30 months behind bars for lying to federal prosecutors, charged with instigating leaks that Joe Wilson’s wife was a CIA operative. Last week, President Donald Trump pardoned Libby — whom he didn’t know — for his transgressions. Wilson, now poised to return to UCSB as guest lecturer, was F-bomb furious. Libby’s lies helped grease the skids to America’s declaration of a war justified on false premises and a violation of international law.
