E.J. Dionne, a columnist for The Washington Post and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, and David Brooks, columnist for The New York Times, talk with Robert Siegel about President Bush's move Monday to commute I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby's sentence.

Brooks calls the whole case a farce from beginning to end. Dionne says the case is all about how the Bush administration made a case for war and was willing to discredit opponents in the process.
