Former Vice President Cheney told a conservative magazine that his aide Scotter Libby, pictured on the right, should have received a pardon from former President George W. Bush.

CNN reports this quote from Dick Cheney:

"He was the victim of a serious miscarriage of justice, and I strongly believe that he deserved a presidential pardon. Obviously, I disagree with President Bush's decision," Cheney told Stephen F. Hayes of the Weekly Standard, a leading conservative Washington magazine.
