Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald says the chief of staff to Dick Cheney "endangered national security" by revealing the identity of CIA agent Valerie Plame. The Vice President, who accepted the resignation with "deep regret," reminded that Libby is presumed innocent until a contrary finding is made by a jury."
