Jury selection for the trial of Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff has begun. Lewis "Scooter" Libby faces five counts of lying to federal investigators, perjury, and obstruction of justice. He is accused of outing CIA operative Valerie Plame. We speak with veteran investigative journalist Murray Waas. Plame is the wife of Ambassador Joseph Wilson who openly accused the Bush administration of manipulating and distorting pre-war intelligence on Iraq.

Murray Waas joins me now on the line from Washington, DC. He is a veteran investigative journalist who writes for National Journal and he has broken a number of stories on the saga of the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame.
