Both Feith and Libby are trained lawyers and annointed esquires in the legal trade. Therefore, it is inescapably significant to emphasize the trained lawyer connection in Mr. Dreyfuss's powerful article. Feith learned about what to do with the evidence at Georgetown Law School. Libby crafted his legal skullduggery at Columbia Law.
May I suggest a more on point and scientifically precise title; "Feith-Libby LAWYER Lies exposed." Another appropriate title emphasizing the trained lawyer lobbyist ethic (lack of ethics?) so rampant in Washington; "Feith and Libby expose themselves in public."
Lest we forget that 21 of the 23 convicted Watergate conspirators were trained lawyers. President Nixon, esquire, learned all about lawyering and evidence at Duke Law School.
The pregnant potential to expose lawyering as a pre-eminent variable in all this lawyerly doubletalk cannot be passed over as a "sketchy interpretation." Feith cannot blow off his blatent lawyering and lying as mere literary interpretation. It most surely was a major part of what lead to the outright murder of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. When the coroner says "dead," it isn't an interpretation, Mr. Feith! Whether one calls it distorting the data, plain old lawyering, or outright lying, it is impossible to miss.
Trained lawyerman Feith's linquistic buffoonery need only be quoted. "I mean, evidence is a legal term not really appropriate here." If the evidence isn't "appropriate here," where, pray tell, is evidence appropriate? Any semblance of human society not to mention sacred science, of course, would be finished--kaput. Since Feith is now a "distinguished professor" at Georgetown School of Foreign Service, he must be teaching his dutiful students to dispense with irritating evidence. As many scientists would endorse and emphasize, law professors routinely muddle the contradictory terms science and law.
According to trained lobbyist/lawyerman Feith, we can and should cavalierly abandon evidence-based inquiry and evidence-based confirmation, at least in the lawyer/lobby trade. Especially if you want to engineer mayhem and murder on the Muslim Untermenschen for your ethnic Zionist clients. A shining confirmation of the Whorehouse Theory of Law, in both message and dirty deed--indeed. Both Feith and Libby should be called what they are: lawyerwhores and Israel- firsters.
There are more lawyers and in Washington, DC, than any other place on the planet.
