AP reports and others, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libbey, was found guilty in the CIA leak trial. His lawers were disappointed and will seek an appeal or retrial.

He was found guilty of "Libby was convicted of one count of obstruction, two counts of perjury and one count of lying to the FBI"

No one will be charged with the actual leak.

This is what Patrick Fitzgerald, special prosecutor for the case had to say, according to the report (if you click on the title of this post) , "It's sad that we had a situation where a high-level official person who worked in the office of the vice president obstructed justice and lied under oath. We wish that it had not happened, but it did."

Also in the report was this information from Dana Perrino, White House deputy press secretary:

"the president respected the jury's verdict but "was saddened for Scooter Libby and his family."

and that

"I would not agree"{ with any characterization of the verdict as embarrassing for the White House. }
