ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comment on the Scooter Libby trial. The judge made a mockery of fair play by not allowing the defense to make the point that no one's memory is perfect. He would not allow the defense to call an expert witness who had made extensive studies of memory, especially what happens when a person is handling the multitude of tasks Libby was handling. This indictment and trial are the kinds of abuse one expects to find in North Korea, not the U.S.
