Giuliani's turnabout on Libby is a fascinating moment in his own political evolution. A reader writes:
It was Giuliani's office that prosecuted Marc Rich. Here's Giuliani on Rich's pardon:
Well, I'm shocked that the President of the United States would pardon him. After all, he never paid a price. He got on an airplane, took all his records, and ran off to Zug, Switzerland, where he's remained a fugitive, and has made untold efforts to try to get the charges reduced, including many, many overtures and entreaties based on the use of influence.
Libby, of course, represented Marc Rich. There really is a different set of standards for the wealthy and connected isn't there?
