I noticed "I love my hairdo" Wilson was yanked from Kerry's website as a foriegn affairs advisor once the Senate Intelligence Committee issued its report. All I can say: never trust a "man" who spends too much time on his hair (Kerry, Ambulance chaser Edwards, Wilson, Joe "plugs" Biden, Clinton, Gary Hart, Trent Lott, McGreevey, Sharpton). It is usually an indication of metrosexuality, or worse.
Bump for later read.
Ping for home reading!!
Strange Joe Wilson failed to mention his second wife at all in his book...
LOL! I've noticed that. . .
"Strange Joe Wilson failed to mention his second wife at all in his book..."
It seems what Wilson doesn't say is often more revealing than what he does!
Wilson will have his served with Niger mint tea. . .
Better yet, throw Wilson in the pokie. He'll get to spend lotsa time doing his hair and wearing a dress to please his cellmate, Bruno.
Wilson ran his company out of the offices of an investment company called Rock Creek Corporation. Rock Creek was controlled by Mohammed Alamoudi, whom Wilson had met in 1997 at a reception organized for the World Bank by Westar Group. Alamoudi was a member of the Saudi-Ethiopian Alamoudi dynasty, which was heavily invested in the segments of the African economy Wilson was seeking to penetrate. The Alamoudi-affiliated company Delta Services--a Swiss subsidiary of the Saudi company Delta Oil--handled Iraqi oil export contracts in 2000 and 2001 and was revealed in 2003 as a recipient of Iraqi Oil-for-Food vouchers channeled through Abu Abbas, a Palestinian terrorist with Iraqi connections.

Not that I needed any more evidence that Joe Wilson is an America-hating Liberal shrill.
Keep it up.
Was most interested in Hagel-connections--would like to see a bit more.
GREAT post! Thank you!
He didn't mention Miss Valerie???!!!
Or could it be that Mlle Jacquie was the one he omitted...???
Woohoo.....nail this guy good!
Another place to look for more information on where his vested interests lie is opensecrets.org:
" Mlle Jacquie " was his second wife. Valerie his third. So I've read...could there be more? :)
for a later read
Congo proved to be far more interesting than I expected. I had recently remarried--my new wife was a Frenchwoman who had been raised in Africa and had returned there to work with the French Ministry of Cooperation, the equivalent of our USAID.
His "new wife" is mentioned again briefly on 116 and 176 while Wilson is describing his experience in Iraq during the Gulf War. On 176 he mentions their marriage had always been shaky and was under increased stress after the Gulf War, when he was in Baghdad alone after she had been evacuated. Apart from that I can't find any other references to her.
Was she MI6, perchance?
Was she KGB, perchance?
The author could have mentioned that Abdurahman Alamoudi was Executive Director of the American Muslim Foundation (AMF). He began his career with the SAAR foundation (under investigation) of Herndon, Virginia and left in 1990 to found the AMF. He was also the Vice President of Taibah International Aid, whose founder was Abdullah Bin Laden, Osama's nephew. The Alamoudi family has been in bed with Islamists for years. Wheels in wheels.
Fedora, you have done yeoman's work here. I am downloading it in case Kerry gets in. Kerry's remark in the Blumenfield interview (WAPO June 3, 2003) that he wished there was a delete button on Lexis Nexis is not easily dismissed.
Kerry's aide bullying Sinclair network to prevent showing of "Stolen Honor" said, "They (Sinclair) better hope Kerry does not get in." does not augur well for any news source not approved by the Kerry administration.
Thanks for your hard work. b.
"Joe was used to the slower pace of small countries in Africa," said a friend who visited Wilson and his French-born wife, Jackie, in Iraq. . .Born in Connecticut, Wilson spent most of his teen-age years abroad. His father was a journalist overseas, mostly in Paris, where the younger Wilson learned the language and developed a love of everything French. According to Bryant, Wilson began calling California home after receiving a bachelor's degree in history from UC Santa Barbara. His two children by a previous marriage live in the Los Angeles area, and his mother in Palm Springs.
Fits right in with the French Weasels.
Yep!--thanks for bringing that up. I didn't elaborate on that for the sake of keeping the length down, but that's what I was alluding to here:
Abdurahman Alamoudi, a prominent American Muslim lobbyist
Also, in relation to Abdullah bin Laden, Mohammed Alamoudi sat with a "Shafig Mohammed bin Laden" on the board of Worldwide News, Inc. 1510 H St., N.W., Washington, DC 2005.
Thanks!--had a lot of help from my fellow FReepers.
I hadn't heard Kerry's remark on Lexis-Nexis, but that does seem to be their M.O. The Alamoudis have also managed to repress some articles about them.
She was Mossad, then...
Thank YOU. I'll check both.
That almost says it all. Great article!
Thanks for the ping!
I looked in your catalog of information on Wilson, I may have missed the article but, did you read the Commentary about Wilson from The Washington Times in July of this year about 'YELLOW CAKE'?
LOL! I don't know if she was or not, but it seems like he had a thing for girlfriends in the spy business.
LA Times, Aug 24, 1990:
Born in Connecticut, Wilson spent most of his teen-age years abroad. His father was a journalist overseas, mostly in Paris, where the younger Wilson learned the language and developed a love of everything French. According to Bryant, Wilson began calling California home after receiving a bachelor's degree in history from UC Santa Barbara.Financial Times, Oct 4, 2003 p13
The son of journalists, Mr Wilson was raised in California and graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara - a place with its share of people who fit Mr Wilson's description of himself as "a former hippie, surf bum and ski bum".
"That almost says it all."
I've probably read it if it was posted on FR but I didn't include that one in my notes. Do you have a link?
Maybe he spent most of his teenage years abroad because being French California was "abroad" to him? :)
I got this from the paper when I used to read papers.http://www.washingtontimes.com/commentary/20040719-084057-3820r.htm
Seems like the c.i.a. dropped the ball on this one as well.
"Seems like the c.i.a. dropped the ball on this one as well."
That's another thing you have to wonder about. . .
Thanks for the link!
Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. I rushed a bit to get this out there before November 2, but ideally given more time I'd have included a chart and timeline to summarize some of the interconnections between various players and the chronological correlation between Wilson's actions and broader developments.
