"They're trying to set me up. They want me to be the sacrificial lamb," [Theodore] Wells [one of Libby's attorneys] said, recalling the conversation between Libby and Cheney. "I will not be sacrificed so Karl Rove can be protected."
Now why would Mr Wells wish to recall that conversation in public ? Wouldn't be that private discussions of Mr Libby's non willingness to be sacrificed haven't elicited the desired cough pardon cough response ?
I didn't know that you were allowed to do it in public.
