9/11 COMMISSION: "JOE WILSON/VALERIE PLAME, BOLD FACED LIARS. BUSH WAS RIGHT!"
WMCA-NY ^ | 7.11.2004

Posted on 07/11/2004 4:50:16 PM PDT by KMC1

NEW YORK - This writer went to some detail long ago to point out the very specific nature of why it was reasonable to doubt the trust-worthiness of one Joseph Wilson. But two things have hit him hard in recent days.

1)The British government's independent investigation into the Iraq/Africa uranium connection confirmed President Bush's claims on Iraq seeking nuclear material.

2) The bi-partisan 9/11 Commission's report pointed out Wilson's dishonesty about the assessment of the information in Niger, but also his lies about how he achieved the post in the first place.

The Washington Post reported that Joseph Wilson, according to the 9/11 Commission report findings WAS recommended for the job by his wife - CIA employee Valerie Plame. Wilson had denied any such connection and asked all to believe that the CIA had simply spontaneously desired Wilson to be assigned the Niger fact finding mission.

According to the Washington Post: "The report states that a CIA official told the Senate committee that Plame "offered up" Wilson's name for the Niger trip, then on Feb. 12, 2002, sent a memo to a deputy chief in the CIA's Directorate of Operations saying her husband "has good relations with both the PM [prime minister] and the former Minister of Mines (not to mention lots of French contacts), both of whom could possibly shed light on this sort of activity." The next day, the operations official cabled an overseas officer seeking concurrence with the idea of sending Wilson, the report said.

Wilson has asserted that his wife was not involved in the decision to send him to Niger."

After Wilson returned he shopped himself similar to a cheap woman of the night to the network television networks in order to criticize the President's State of the Union Address.

Wilson asserted that in President Bush's address when the President referred to the Iraqi regime attempting to purchase "uranium from Africa", that Bush was referring exclusively to Wilson's fact finding mission. The President did not refer to Wilson or to Niger directly in the text of his speech.

The appearance that was left on the American public was one of dishonesty - but it was dishonesty of Wilson - NOT BUSH.

Multiple African nations have since reported attempts from the Iraqi regime to seek uranium. Last week the British investigation into the Niger case specifically led the investigators to reiterate the British position (from which they had never waivered) - Saddam DID try to buy uranium from Niger. The 9/11 report casts significant doubt over ALL of Wilson's "findings" in Niger.

Joe Wilson wrote that his trip to Niger had basically consisted of meeting with Niger officials and drinking lots of mint juleps.

He should help himself to another...dishonest people do need their vices to keep them distracted from the actual facts of such matters...

Diplomat at Eye of Storm (Joseph Wilson)

He also supports efforts by the antiwar organization Moveon.org to put conditions on spending in Iraq by the Bush administration -- among them, the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and others.

Does this also makes his bogus claim of leaking his wife's name untrue? If so - then this whole investigation issue is also bogus, and he should reimburse the Government for all the costs involved, and APOLOGIZE to President Bush and the American people?

They will merely move on to their next lie.

Wilson always looked like an unbelievable egotistical, self-aggrandizing, INCOMPETENT!!!, liar to me. Of course libs are so blinded by their hatred of Bush that they'll eagerly swallow the hokum of any fellow-traveler. Pathetic. Naturally there will be large retractions and admissions of erroneous judgements by Big Media about this. (/sarcasm)

Here is an earlier thread on this subject:

Note that Wilson also went on a CIA trip in 1999 after being recommended by his wife.

No, Washington would have imposed the ultimate penalty and insult:

He would have placed a pair of women's panties on Wilson's head for telling a lie.

With a sign pinned to his butt: "Liar, liar, pants on fire."

If and when anybody ever gets to the bottom of who leaked Plames name , it is going to be her husband.

How was it Wilson wanted to see Karl Rove? Something about shackled and "duck-walked" out of the White House? Looks more like Wilson is the one who needs to be shackled and duck-walked into Federal court.

Quack!

You're right of course. But no one is reporting who Joe Wilson is working for now. He has an independent consulting firm, brokering gold for what country? Niger. Very convenient to be working for the country you gave a clean bill of health to (falsely).

Of course this is being reported on every story involving Joe Wilson.

Nobody "leaked" her name and everyone in the press knew it. The "source" only told Bob Novak the truth about Wilson...that his wife got him the job and that they're both Democrat hacks.

It's a tribute to the power of the Leftwing media that were able to completely manufacture this "scandal", keep it going and feed it without ever once dealing with the actual subject of Novak's article discrediting Joe Wilson. That's control.

Correction,

Mr. Wilson said that he would be delighted to see Karl Rove "... frog-marched out of the White House, in hand cuffs."

I do believe that Mr. Wilson is the only frog who is going to be "gigged".

Mint tea, not mint juleps. Nigeria is a Sunni Muslim country. And it's a bit different for someone to be drinking tea on the job or drinking alcohol. Do you even care about facts? Oh, that's right, you're on talk radio.

We are under the illusion that we have a free press in America. What is coming more to light is the fact that our press has its allegiance to the left and choses what truth it wants to reveal. For instance, in Iraq they have now stacked the deck with anti-war reporters so that all we hear from Iraq is the stuff to arm its critiques with more ammunition against the Bush Administration. When this is continuous, the contempt for America builds not only in this country but world wide. If they are lucky, they may even swing the election in favor for the Democrats.

This also has another side effect. With the cover of darkness that is allowed by our biased press, we have allowed a sickness to grow much like a batch of home-brew beer gone south. We are creating such mutants as Joe Wilson, Michael Moore, and the Hollywood left to name a few.
These people create havoc for the security of America world wide by defaming our good name. They claim they have freedom of speech to say what they want. They say is is their right to call the President a thug and debase his name as if it were disgusting pubic hair. However, is it free speech when the press hides the truth that refutes everything they say? Is it free speech when the antics of the Hollywood left at a Kerry fundraiser almost escaped any scrutiny had it not been the presence of a New York Post reporter? Is it free speech when the lies cause great harm and those who try to speak the truth are destroyed with character assassination (Rush Limbaugh for instance)?

Seeing as how Mr. Wilson's lying has caused the government to spend probably several hundred, if not a couple million, in taxpayer dollars, I think his dismissal would be an appropriate price to pay. Think that will ever happen?

You really think the press is gonna pull that nail oughta old George after they hammered him with it for so long?? Now we have Fahrenheit 911 smearing him with outrageous lies in theatres "near you", around the country and people paying to see the mess.

The press and the Democrats are not about truth, only power, and any lie and distortion that aids their cause is welcomed until it's eventual proven false. Then they just grab another lie line and ride off again screaching and screaming through their media wind tunnels.

I'll give the Washington Post some credit for printing this:

According to the Washington Post: "The report states that a CIA official told the Senate committee that Plame "offered up" Wilson's name for the Niger trip, then on Feb. 12, 2002, sent a memo to a deputy chief in the CIA's Directorate of Operations saying her husband "has good relations with both the PM [prime minister] and the former Minister of Mines (not to mention lots of French contacts), both of whom could possibly shed light on this sort of activity."

maybe his wife thought he was such an ineffectual a**hole that he couldn't get jobs without her pulling strings behind his back (when he announced being approached, maybe she said, "oh that's nice, honey")...

maybe he didn't know SHE got him referred, and she went along with it, thinking he would be happy and feel important, now...

heh-heh...

so bill HER for the whole investigation!

This individual was paraded all over television and given prominent stories in every major newspaper and given a soapbox to attack the President with his lies. Now the press likely won't even give 10% the amount of coverage to the truth that they had given to the lies.
