Follow-up to related postings on Plame CIA leak trial, press release: “The declassified documents introduced as evidence during the trial of Vice President Cheney’s former chief of staff, Lewis “Scooter” Libby, provide an almost unprecedented window into Mr. Cheney’s own role as the most powerful vice president in history, according to National Security Archive director Tom Blanton this morning on NPR’s Morning Edition.

Talking with NPR’s anchor Steve Inskeep, Blanton annotated a series of trial exhibits including several in Mr. Cheney’s own handwriting, ranging from his scribbles on a New York Times op-ed piece critical of the administration, to his tasking of the White House press operation to defend Libby against charges of leaking classified information.”
