Republican Delay Tactics

There's a great Robert Scheer editorial in Monday's Los Angeles Times (Free registration is required to view) about Republican delay tactics in the Valerie Plame leak investigation and its impact on the 2004 Election. According to Scheer:
The most intriguing revelation of Special Prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald's news conference last week was his assertion that he would have presented his indictment of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby a year ago if not for the intransigence of reporters who refused to testify before the grand jury. He said that without that delay, "we would have been here in October 2004 instead of October 2005.

Had that been the case, John Kerry probably would be president of the United States today.

Pretty convenient how the Republicans were able to delay the investigation, huh?
