An obligation to pardon Libby
To the editor:If you are the head of a criminal organization or if you have created an organization for the sole purpose of criminal activities, then I think you have certain obligations to the members. If one of the foot soldiers throws his body in front of the train to save the higher-up members of the family, then I think the head of the family should take care of him. This has been the tradition of all crime families for generations.
So I don't see what all the fuss is about whether President Bush should pardon Scooter Libby. He has an obligation to do so.
