The Chewbacca Defense returns!

John Podhoretz, in an opinion piece on how the Plame investigation is imploding (no, seriously) trots out The Chewbacca Defense:

October 18, 2005 -- A ONCE-SIMPLE story has become far too convoluted for anyone but the most obsessive to follow. The original question was this: Did the leak of CIA employee Valerie Wilson Plame's identity to columnist Robert Novak violate federal law?

A special prosecutor, U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, was assigned to answer that question more than two years ago.

It's so complicated! If Chewbacca lived on Endor, you must acquit! The defense rests.

The dreaded ELI has other Chewbacca news.
