WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- Last week, the presidential campaign of Democratic candidate Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) very publicly distanced itself from former National Security Advisor Samuel "Sandy" Berger after it became known that Berger was under investigation for removing highly classified documents from the National Archives.
Talon News reported that Kerry's anti-terror policy was removed from the candidate's web site immediately following Berger's dismissal as a campaign advisor. But in the last few days, another advisor has apparently been jettisoned from the Kerry campaign. All traces of former Ambassador Joe Wilson, the central figure in the controversy of faulty intelligence about Iraq and uranium has disappeared from the Kerry web site. Wilson had appeared on a web site www.restorehonesty.com where he restated his criticism of the Bush administration. The link now goes directly to the main page of www.johnkerry.com and no reference to Wilson can be found on the entire site.
Wilson was discredited by a Senate Intelligence Committee report that contradicted Wilson's public statements about how he was selected for a sensitive mission to Niger in 2002 and the results of his report about Saddam Hussein's attempt to purchase uranium in Africa. Wilson represented his investigation as proof that President Bush misled the United States in making the case for the invasion of Iraq. An investigation into British intelligence confirms that Bush's claim was "well founded."
It is likely that Kerry's handlers took advantage of the Berger affair to quietly break official contact with someone who has proved to be something of a loose cannon. The ambassador was known for his vitriolic rhetoric against members of the Bush administration, particularly political advisor Karl Rove. Last year he suggested that Rove be "frog-marched from the White House in handcuffs," over the alleged leak of his wife's identity.
The Kerry campaign did not respond to a Talon News inquiry about Wilson's departure.

Another turd flushed. First blubberbutt theif Berger and now Wilson. Come Nov, there'll be another flush, Kerry/Leftwards swirling in the bowl.
Obviously, this is an attempt to bring Kerry to the center and into reality. He had two advisors that were radioactive...probably has more. I Wonder when Kerry will dump Teresa too.
Birds of a Feather flock together. Maybe that's why Bush has jumped to a 9 point lead. going to get a lot worse for the Evil Lying Dums.
Bye bye JOE!!!
Kerry's dropping his dead weight like maggots off a meat wagon - ping.
Too late! The damage is done.
Could be he is listening to somebody! For now anyway!
when some female with more $$$ comes along.
Too bad this won't get any real media coverage.
So Wilson's outed as a liar and all association with the Kerry campaign is removed and forgotten. Too bad no one is telling the sheeple. A thread yesterday mentioned the unbelievable coverage of Wilson's "Bush is a liar" story, but hardly a peep is heard exposing Wilson as the real liar in this affair.
You have to question the timing on this.
Looks like Mr. Wilson buys his tiny ties off the Boys' rack.
What's that in the air I smell .... FEAR???
hahahahahaha ... Later Joe!
One of the fundamental flaws among democrats is well illustrated here. Their conditions of loyalty are as thin on the front end as they are on the back side. Today's golden trophy whore willing to mouth off anything salatious becomes tommorrow's boat anchor. You would think that democrats might have begun to understand this phenomenon, but not yet? With all the aides Clinton piled up like cordwood during a cold winter, becoming a democrat loyalist is a bit like masochism, if not suicide.
Can't wait to see bench.
