Yes. And It's All Ashcroft's Fault

Yes: Krauthammer on Libby.

It's all Ashcroft's fault: from Novak's column yesterday:
Armitage had turned himself in to the Justice Department three months before Fitzgerald entered the case, without notifying the White House or releasing me from my requirement of confidentiality.
Three months? Why in the heck did Justice allow itself to be mau-maued into a special prosecutor in the first place? Remember, Ashcroft actually recused himself in the matter --what the heck for? They should have just outed Armitage and been done with it.
