The Washington Post on the Libby Prosecution
Not a flattering picture. There will be two consequences from Fitzgerald's crusade. The first is that reporters will no longer be as sure as they were of the contours of their professional privileges. The second is that, barring elimination by Congress, the institution of special prosecutor will continue down its current, cavalier, abusive path. They will continue to build elaborate webs of legal tripwire around the feet of politicians and senior officials - which is bound to catch up someone at some point.
