Scooter Libby Met With Tom Cruise on Scientology

Scooter Libby’s CIA briefer, Craig Schmall, reports that he and Libby had a discussion on Saturday* June 14, 2003 about a visit from Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz, with the former interested in talking about Germany’s treatment of Scientologists. Libby was apparently quite excited about the visit.

*Counsel for both sides stipulated that June 14 was indeed a Saturday. I have verified that fact independently as well.

  1. that their memories are faulty and credibility suspect, that the Bush Administration set him up to be their fall-guy because they didn’t want Rove busted, and also that he was too busy a man to engage in such petty rift-raft — indeed, he was busy talking to Tom Cruise about scientology. Hollywood is a crazy place, and Libby is apparently counting on that to help him Cruise toward freedom. I think it’s pretty clear he’s going to prison, and hopefully he can join Israel’s President.

    what are you talking about bain & paul? He can’t get excited about meeting a couple of international film stars? That somehow precludes him from doing great things?

    I would LOVE if this administration could walk and chew gum at the same time. Unfortunately Katrina and Iraq proved that false.
