Pulitzer Prize winning Dana Priest is married to William Goodfellow. William Goodfellow is the Executive Director of the the Center for International Policy (CIP).
Here is what Discover The Networks has to say about the Center For International Policy:

Americas Red Army
One of the most sophisticated of Fentons anti-war projects is the co-mingling of Win Without War and the Center for International Policy (CIP).
Before 9/11, CIP, a Fenton Communications client, mainly acted as Fidel Castros greatest think tank ally. Much of its million-dollar budget was spent lobbying to end economic sanctions and travel restrictions against Cuba.
Now, it has another mission. Fenton has established a war room with CIP called The Iraq Policy Information Program (IPIP). Its main job is getting the anti-Bush foreign policy message out to the media and providing guests for talk shows. A featured speaker of the IPIP is former ambassador Joe Wilson, one of the Bush administrations most vocal enemies.
Like Moveon.org and Win Without War, the contact for the Iraq Policy Information Program is Fenton Communications. Win Without War also collects tax-deductible donations through CIP.
So Dana Priest's husband runs an operation that gets Joe Wilson speaking gigs.
A "small world" ping.
Good catch. Next, I suppose we'll find that he's on the Pulitzer Prize Committee.
And the irony about them salivating over Valerie Plame, while not looking at a real intelligence leak, is predictable.
Aren't these scum what used to be called the fifth column?
I AM SHOCKED I TELL YOU!/sarcasm on.
Maybe they should call it the "Santa Cruz Post"?
Well, ain't that special?!!!
The White House Press Corps is more like the fourth grade.
Ecuador RPCV Randolph 'Ry' Ryan was a crusader for Peace
Mr. Ryan also won other prizes, including a Eugene Pulliam Editorial Writing Fellowship in 1989.
After leaving the Globe in 1996, Mr. Ryan worked in Bosnia first as a spokesman for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, then as a political analyst for the private International Crisis Group, and then helped to train Yugoslav journalists for the International Research and Exchange Board.
In 2000, he helped plan the UN's special session on social development, held in Geneva, and he had since been a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy. There, according to Goodfellow, the center director, the two teamed up to help derail the Bush administration appointment of Otto Reich, one of those they felt put out erroneous information in Central America.
I am glad they told me.
I would love to express how I really feel about these people.
Another post here made a pretty good case for Wilson getting his orders from McCarthy for his trip to Niger. Conveniently, McCarthy chose to leak her info to Priest who's husband has ties to Wilson. It's a cozy little circle, don't you think?
"And the irony about them salivating over Valerie Plame, while not looking at a real intelligence leak, is predictable."
And never mind that Priest's "stories" about the CIA gulags in Europe turned out to be COMPLETELY UNTRUE.
They hurt America and helped our enemies, so they have to reward her somehow.
If I were interested in Dana Priest at all, I'd wonder how Mary McCarthy feels about asking her for a character reference.
Wonder how the CIA might feel about hubby giving the defrocked spook a spot at the CIP? Now, that would be interesting.
It doesn't get any better ping
