Scooter Code

“You went into jail in the summer. It is fall now. You will have stories to cover—Iraqi elections and suicide bombers, biological threats and the Iranian nuclear program. Out West, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them. Come back to work—-and life. Until then, you will remain in my thoughts and prayers.”

That's from Scooter Libby's famous letter to Judith Miller. The part about the aspens is so bizarre that several people have theorized it's code. My only contribution is to point out that Les Aspin is the former Secretary of Defense under Clinton. Interesting?

Like most neo-cons, Libby is barking mad. The code message is in his head, like dubya's voices.
