This stuff drives me crazy. These do not describe the same person.
Which one is myth, and why?

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".

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? :)

Seems like the c.i.a. dropped the ball on this one as well.

This is remarkably well done, as good or better than most investigative reporting. I had no idea about Wison's Francophilia or his investments and business deals. My only suggestions would be to look at Wilson's foundation and do more for the sake of readability and clarity, such as subheads, stronger chronology, and more transition and summary sentences.

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.

LOL! We can all sing the "Trick or Treat/smell my feet" song to Wilson :)

Thanks for your work/post.

It gives us a broader context of Joe Wilson.

That was my goal, so that's very good to hear, thanks! :)

Now, read the rest of it. Then come back and tell me that the real target of the investigation isn't someone inside the CIA, close to Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson.

Did you do all this research, yourself? It's amazing and the implications are so far reaching.
