What Bush needs to do is release video footage of the yellowcake uranium in Iraq.
BUMP .... So did the French or JFKerry select old Joe Wilson to sip tea in Niger to cover up Saddam and "yellowcake"?????
Considering that J F'n K gave Old Joe a job on his campaign shortly after he carried water for him....
If I'm not mistaken, Wilson signed on with J F'n K's campaign as early as March 2003 and his NYT op ed was written in July. I'll try to find a link to the timeline.
I seem to remember it was after; lemme know what you find out.
Tea and yellowcake. Always a tasty snack. Hey Joe, care for a spot of tea with that yellowcake? Hm?
I agree that President Bush should have the guts to reveal all this information about Saddam's stockpile. Bush is shooting himself in the foot by holding back vital information that would destroy the MSM and give the Democratic nutty bunch a hot foot. Why, is Bush afraid to pull some strings on some of these nuts?
In this October 2003 article, he claims to have been advising Kerry for about 5 months. That would put his initial involvement back in May or June of 2003.
Wilson, former ambassador to the West African nation of Gabon, said he has long been a Kerry supporter and has contributed $2,000 to the campaign this year. He said he has been advising Kerry on foreign policy for about five months and will campaign for Kerry, including a trip to New Hampshire next month.Emphasis mine.
Everyone knows Hussein had 500 tons of yellowcake. Hell, the UN was in charge of monitoring it. We removed it after the war.
But don't let any of that get in the way of the idiot agenda of the Left.
Could minor Ambassador Joe Wilson himself have been the source in blowing his own Wife's cover?
It is distinctly possible, (though it may be unlikely that Joe Wilson himself directly was NY Times Judith Miller's source), since Joe Wilson himself evidently routinely bragged openly to strangers about her CIA employment, prior to such "cover" being "blown" in the press.
Here's an example of Joe's apparently routine and open bragging about Valerie being a "CIA agent," which became known directly to me over a year ago:
He certainly bragged about it per a famous and highly reliable source's (named below) account of his own face-to-face encounter with Amb. Joe Wilson prior to Valerie Plame's "outing" as a CIA agent/employee.
Based upon a personal conversation (we were in a small group eating; it was NOT an "off the record") I had with eminent historian Victor Davis Hanson (we were at a luncheon table together during a trip to Europe), it appeared entirely possible that Joe Wilson himself was the (or one source, if not the original one) possible source in revealing his own wife's status as a CIA agent or employee.
Victor Davis Hanson (Wilson presumably knew Victor Davis Hanson wrote regularly for NRO (National Review Online), had done OpEds for the Wall street Journal, and other publications, and had his own Website with a widespread following) said he (VDH) & Joe Wilson were both in the same "Green Room" before a televised debate-discussion on Iraq, etc. and Joe first warned the TV make-up person not to get powder on his $14,000 Rolex watch, then he bragged to Victor about several things (possessions and trips to Aspen, etc.), like his expensive car (I think it was a Mercedes), and then bragged about his beautiful wife who, Joe Wilson said (braggingly) was a CIA operative.
I asked Victor Davis Hanson Why he didn't write up this account.(?) He replied that Joe Wilson would probably simply deny it, since only he (VDH) & Joe Wilson were in the Green Room together before the broadcast.
However, it is now easy to surmise that Joe Wilson is a crass, materialistic, self-promoting, vain, egotistical, bragaddocio-opportunist, so this account is perfectly consistent with Valerie Plame's TWO photo shoots in Vanity Fair. (Or was it Vogue? No, probably too crass for Vogue, n'est pas?)
It's not exactly a revelation. Iraq posessing it was not a violation of any agreements or UN sanctions, and it was regularly monitored by the IAEA, and its existence was well known and documented repeatedly before the war.
And the only way yellowcake can injure you is if someone dropped a drum of it out a window on your head.
the pubbies do not promote themselves very well. why, i do not know.
