Bush Commutes Libby Prison Sentence - 2 Jul 2007 at 6:19pm - President Bush commuted the sentence of former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby on Monday, sparing him from a 2 1/2-year prison term that Bush said was excessive.

And so this investigation is ongoing and -- by professionals who do this for a living, and I hope they -- I'd like to know. -President Bush, when pressed in a 2003-Oct-10 press conference to say if he remained eager to find out whether somebody in the White House leaked the identity of undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame.

It seems time to ask Mr. Bush again how important he considers the leak investigation to have been.
