Did Cheney just get thrown under the bus?

Raw Story: Fitzgerald discloses White House recently turned over 250 pages of emails in CIA leak inquiry
Special Prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald said in a court hearing Friday that the White House "recently located and turned over" 250 pages of emails from the Office of Vice President Dick Cheney, according to an article filed by the Associated Press Friday evening.

This could mean a lot of different things.

It could mean nothing: It is hard to imagine that these monarchists would give up anything important to Fitz or the court voluntarily. So there might be nothing of import in these new emails.

It could mean they are feeding Scooter to the wolves, but Scooter knows the coordinates for a large number of corpses, and if the White House crowd doesn't play him very carefully, they will have a canary on their hands.

But what if it means they've turned on the Dick? What if Operation Birdshot was Cheney's last hurrah, and Dubya (and/or his handlers) decided that their troubles are becoming so omnipresent that the only way to float their beached ship (to mix metaphors) was to throw something heavy and useless overboard?

The mind boggles at the prospects.

Why didn't Fitz subpoena all their hard drives to begin with? Why give them the opportunity to withhold them in the first place?
