Come Se Dice... Escandaloso!

Well, blow me down with a Gucci feather boa! Look who's chairman of 'Scooter' Libby's Legal Defense Fund: Mel Sembler, who was the US Ambassador to Italy when the Italian secret service was helping Michael Ledeen concoct the whole Niger uranium lie.

Sembler is also a former Ambassador to Australia, a Republican fundraiser, a "longtime political supporter of Cheney", and a property developer.

Firedoglake takes a good look at the dence team and suggests defending Libby is not their main agenda: stifling the fallout from Nigergate is.
