Joseph Wilson: 'Karl Rove should be fired' Wilson says 'justice' was served by Libby's indictment

Editor's Note: CNN Access is a regular feature on CNN.com providing interviews with newsmakers from around the world.
(CNN) -- Retired career diplomat and former U.S. Ambassador Joseph Wilson has been a prominent figure throughout special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation into who leaked the secret identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame, Wilson's wife.
Three days after a federal grand jury indicted I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, in the CIA leak investigation, CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer talked Monday with Wilson.
BLITZER: Do you have confidence in Patrick Fitzgerald?
WILSON: Absolutely. In fact, I think the one thing that the indictment showed the other day is that our system of justice works; that in a nation that is based upon the rule of law, no man is above the law. And that's what Pat Fitzgerald said and made very clear.
BLITZER: Are you, though, disappointed that he didn't charge anyone with outing your wife as an undercover CIA operative?
WILSON: Well, I think it's important to remember two things.
One, he was unable to indict on anything other than the charges because, as he said, his investigation into this was impeded by the obstruction of justice and perjury.
And two, as he said, the state's interests were vindicated by the indictments that were handed down.
And three, finally, this is not a crime against Joe Wilson or Valerie Wilson, it's a crime against the country, against the national security of the country.
So we have no vote in whether or not we're disappointed or not disappointed.

Joe Wilson should STFU....
He REALLY needs his pansy ass kicked....
Actually I find him quite useful. Anyone asking him softball questions and not offering anyone with an opposing view to rebut makes their position clear for all to see.
Hey Joeslob. Happy Scalitoween! Wallow in your irrelvence Joey. You took your best scumbag shot and STILL got nothing. HHHAAAA! LOSER!
That's what happens when you have a media as partisan as ours.
When I lived in Washington DC, I used to run into them on the town, and the way they discussed politics in hotels, restaurants, and bars was unbelievable. They should hang sings around their neck that say: "I get my marching orders from the DNC!"
"And three, finally, this is not a crime against Joe Wilson or Valerie Wilson, it's a crime against the country, against the national security of the country."
What a pompous tub. Time will tell.
Blitzer: Soft fluffy question ...
Joseph Wilson: Blah Blah Blah Blah, Barf Barf Barf Barf Barf Barf Barf Barf Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah.
Thats pretty much what I hear from that Jackass now.
Joe Wilson and his stupid wife should be tarred, feathered and then run out of Washington on a rail.
"Joe Wilson should STFU....
He REALLY needs his pansy ass kicked....
Nice going, river rat! You beat me to it.
Personally, I think the Joe Wilson needs to have his maggoty scum laden hide severly beaten about the brain housing group in a orderly military fashion to the extent that his Grandmother feels each and every blow as it is administered.
But, that's just me.
Semper Fi, Mac!
Joe Wilson should face a firing squad for TREASON.
Hey, Joe, you should be investigated. Wonder what they would turn up on you if they spent 2 years and millions of $s?
You're such a shoe salesman - sleaze just oozes from every pore.
In other words,since no law was broken as to the issue I was empowered to investigate I made this indictment to justify the money spent and then will claim I just could`nt do my job because of Libby.
That is a crock,called CYA,if he knows for a fact that Libby lied than it holds that he must know what the truth is.
If he knows what the truth is than there is no credibility to his claim that Libby prevented him from determining if an indictable offense occurred as it relates to the revealing of Plame.
Only by the MSM in the United States would a proven liar by given time by the print media and Television. C-Span is doing more and more of this type coverage. Looks like the loonies have taken over what was an even handed organization.
Where's Wilson get his money? I heard on the radio today he was in bed with Saddam's chief arms dealer back in 1989. Time for someone to start tracing the money trail to Wilson, Plame, Rich, and the others.
Greg Adams: "Joe Wilson should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail!"
he will understand at some point , that if you go to destroy your enemies , you must destroy them all. not their assistants. he will not get another chance. you watch.
I can't say that I agree with you, most folks do not have alot of political saavy and these kinds of "reasoned" commentaries have effect. It is not like the lefty loons who just go off and make fools of themselves.
