NEW YORK - This writer went to some detail long ago to point out the very specific nature of why it was reasonable to doubt the trust-worthiness of one Joseph Wilson. But two things have hit him hard in recent days.
1)The British government's independent investigation into the Iraq/Africa uranium connection confirmed President Bush's claims on Iraq seeking nuclear material.
2) The bi-partisan 9/11 Commission's report pointed out Wilson's dishonesty about the assessment of the information in Niger, but also his lies about how he achieved the post in the first place.
The Washington Post reported that Joseph Wilson, according to the 9/11 Commission report findings WAS recommended for the job by his wife - CIA employee Valerie Plame. Wilson had denied any such connection and asked all to believe that the CIA had simply spontaneously desired Wilson to be assigned the Niger fact finding mission.
According to the Washington Post: "The report states that a CIA official told the Senate committee that Plame "offered up" Wilson's name for the Niger trip, then on Feb. 12, 2002, sent a memo to a deputy chief in the CIA's Directorate of Operations saying her husband "has good relations with both the PM [prime minister] and the former Minister of Mines (not to mention lots of French contacts), both of whom could possibly shed light on this sort of activity." The next day, the operations official cabled an overseas officer seeking concurrence with the idea of sending Wilson, the report said.
Wilson has asserted that his wife was not involved in the decision to send him to Niger."
After Wilson returned he shopped himself similar to a cheap woman of the night to the network television networks in order to criticize the President's State of the Union Address.
Wilson asserted that in President Bush's address when the President referred to the Iraqi regime attempting to purchase "uranium from Africa", that Bush was referring exclusively to Wilson's fact finding mission. The President did not refer to Wilson or to Niger directly in the text of his speech.
The appearance that was left on the American public was one of dishonesty - but it was dishonesty of Wilson - NOT BUSH.
Multiple African nations have since reported attempts from the Iraqi regime to seek uranium. Last week the British investigation into the Niger case specifically led the investigators to reiterate the British position (from which they had never waivered) - Saddam DID try to buy uranium from Niger. The 9/11 report casts significant doubt over ALL of Wilson's "findings" in Niger.
Joe Wilson wrote that his trip to Niger had basically consisted of meeting with Niger officials and drinking lots of mint juleps.
He should help himself to another...dishonest people do need their vices to keep them distracted from the actual facts of such matters...

Diplomat at Eye of Storm (Joseph Wilson)
He also supports efforts by the antiwar organization Moveon.org to put conditions on spending in Iraq by the Bush administration -- among them, the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and others.
I can't wait to see this story in my local newspaper tomorrow. And on all the major news channels. On second thought, I'd better not hold my breath.
And do you think any of this will be "HeadLine News" in tomorrows papers??????
I HIGHLY doubt it...
Thanks to the Freepers for keeping us up to date on the truth!!!!!!!!
Don't hold your water either.
I can quite imagine that while he was sipping his mint juleps he couldn't help but brag how his CIA wife was helpful with her "connections" in getting him get the job.
Does this also makes his bogus claim of leaking his wife's name untrue? If so - then this whole investigation issue is also bogus, and he should reimburse the Government for all the costs involved, and APOLOGIZE to President Bush and the American people?
I don't think that CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, AP, Reuters, MSNBC, The Washington ComPost, or the New York Times are about to report this embarrassing news.
They will merely move on to their next lie.
President Washington would have hung Wilson to prove an important point.
Wilson always looked like an unbelievable egotistical, self-aggrandizing, INCOMPETENT!!!, liar to me. Of course libs are so blinded by their hatred of Bush that they'll eagerly swallow the hokum of any fellow-traveler. Pathetic. Naturally there will be large retractions and admissions of erroneous judgements by Big Media about this. (/sarcasm)
I blame the republicans they're like scared mice afraid to speak out.Republicans get this out on the major networks!!!!
Republicans should demand this be out along with everything else they hid in order to make Kerry look good and Bush look bad.
Good luck trying to get the rest of the media to cover this.
Here is an earlier thread on this subject:
Note that Wilson also went on a CIA trip in 1999 after being recommended by his wife.
No, Washington would have imposed the ultimate penalty and insult:
He would have placed a pair of women's panties on Wilson's head for telling a lie.
With a sign pinned to his butt: "Liar, liar, pants on fire."
