A Letter from Joe Wilson
on John Kerry

So when this President Bush's Administration sent me to Africa to investigate claims that Saddam Hussein was seeking to buy materials for weapons of mass destruction, I was ready to serve.

But I wasn't ready to keep quiet when this President misled the nation in his State of the Union Address. Because of that, leakers in the Bush White House illegally revealed that my wife worked in the CIA - endangering her life and that of my family. They tried to intimidate me and others who were willing to speak up and tell the truth.

Some people have said I was courageous to speak truth to the power of the Bush White House. But let me tell you, what I have done doesn't hold a candle to the courage that John Kerry showed as a young man and throughout his political career.

Wilson sure as hell was willing to keep quiet. Moyers and others gave him plenty of opportunities to pipe up.

Instead, he kept quiet for six months--until he got a paycheck from Kerry and the promise of some high level state department appointment (Secretary Of State?)--for his "courage."
