Skip to comments.Plame's Input Is Cited on Niger Mission (Joe Wilson lied about EVERYTHING)
Posted on 07/10/2004 1:49:22 AM PDT by thoughtomator
Former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, dispatched by the CIA in February 2002 to investigate reports that Iraq sought to reconstitute its nuclear weapons program with uranium from Africa, was specifically recommended for the mission by his wife, a CIA employee, contrary to what he has said publicly.
-------- snip! ----------
Wilson's assertions -- both about what he found in Niger and what the Bush administration did with the information -- were undermined yesterday in a bipartisan Senate intelligence committee report.

Say it isn't so!!!
Hey girls....come read this one and ping everybody.
His wife probably leaked herself to Robert Novak, and then claimed it was the evil Bush regime behind it. Probably now on George Soros's payroll. Poor little Georgie Soros (the owner of the Democratic Party), he huffs and he puffs, but he just can't blow the President down.
One thing I cannot understand is why the Republicans have not taken the initiative on this and demanded investigations as to how Wilson came to be pegged for this job.
If I'm understanding this right, Tenet went to his analysts, told them he had an important job regarding critical intelligence that needed to be checked out and asked if any of them had any spouses completely lacking in espionage or investigative experience who might be up to the job. And that's how Wilson got the job.
If Plame suggested that her hack husband was the man for the job, then it's a darn good thing she's no longer in any kind of serious intelligence gathering position as a result of her outing.
But it freaks me out that there might still be analysts and operatives in the CIA as feckless as this woman was to suggest her husband.
bump for later
When you saw the man sitting there sipping on a glass of mint tea and playing with a set of Islamic prayer beads you kind of got the idea that something wasn't right. :^)
"One thing I cannot understand is why the Republicans have not taken the initiative on this and demanded investigations as to how Wilson came to be pegged for this job."
Some people have noticed that the GOP has not really been very good about pointing out and fighting a great many of the Democrat's sins. Opposition party?
But can RNC do it?
It might go a long way toward blunting the distortions which are sure to come out of the Senate intelligence report or the inevitable October surprise.
Well, Monday morning, we all oughta call Letterman's office.
Ping for more Wilson lies exposed via the Senate Intel Committee.
I'm just amazed this was printed in the Washington Post.
It must of killed them to do it.
I'm shocked, shocked!(NOT)..I don't like it that the CIA never really investigated the documents referred to,though. Britain has not disavowed their info that Bush referred to about Uranium /Iraq/ Africa.
I'd still like to know who exactly it was that sent Wilson.
C-Span is thoroughly analyzing it on Saturday Washington Journal, tying it in with the WashTimes Guy Taylor article.
Thoroughly analyzing it? Fairly or fouly?
