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.

May I share your poem with my cyberfriends?
Sure. I wrote this one today about another Kerry supporter.
Hey.....you are a talented poet.....and up 'till now I didn't know it... ;)
Do you also post at 'Amy's Place'?
There is no female with more $$$. That's why Kerry supports Gay Marriage. Gotta broaden the field...
I LIKE IT!
Yes. Several Just amy links on my profile page.
When in history can one find a man running for President with so much lying scum around him yet the media looks the other way.....? Moore, Clarke,Berger and now Wilson......Come on America! WAKE~UP.
I guess someone on the campaign is not all that stupid. He really should of done it 3-4 months ago. So who's the NEW and IMPROVED Intelligence advisor, Teresa Heinz Kerry?
dang, good point.
he could also go bigamist with the olsen twins.
Thanks this good news was reported on Free Republic last week.
The Kerrorist Nerds working at the Komrade Kerry Kamp have had a lot of sleepless nights last and this week.
They have been deleting files and links as those files and links are exposed as treason and pure lies like the Wilson link, which was financed by the new KKKers, (Komrad Kerry Kerrorists).
"Does this include Chris Matthews' lips which were firmly planted on Wilson's a**?"
When last reported, Chrisy Girlyit's Glow in the Dark Lips were seen slithering around DC look for another lying liberal clymer to attach to.
Rumor amongst the Girlyits in DC is that Chrisy's lips will be firmly attached to Lannie Davis's clymer until after the election.
Whew. I HATE stuff like that!
I'm male so perhaps my perspective is a bit skewed, but for what it's worth, I have a slightly different take.
Notice Teresa retains her late husband's last name as her middle name. I also read that when speaking freely she refers to late Senator Heinz as often as she does her current john.
She is a free spirited and independent thinker apparently. It strikes me that she doesn't care much for the "political wife" life style...especially if some lowly hired hand is going to be telling her where, when and what to go and do. Plus the First Lady spotlight is certainly brighter and less comfortable than that on the wife of the junior senator from ma. is.
She has been a Republican until recently and undoubtedly has fraternized with many Republicans, at least until this john became a candidate. I'm sure that mingling close up and personal with the dim rabble is not her cup of tea.
She is reportedly worth around a billion dollars - she doesn't need to upgrade her lifestyle.
I say the chances of he dumping this john are better than those of he dumping her.
Re post 2, I love your imagery!
You do the same for me. It is amazing how many freepers up to this year would post how fair Chrissy girl was.
And does the press call Kerry and gang on these associations?
BTW, Kerry's folks took down restore honesty, but I don't know if this means he's no longer an advisor to Kerry.
