I did a Google on "generals foreign policy experts campaign for kerry new hampshire" and came up with the same press release you did.

Did you note THIS at the end of the release? Whereas the campaign said there would be "dozens" of foreign policy experts fanning out across the state, only SIX were worthy of having their biographical info included. And...you got it...Wilson was among the six. Sounds like he was pretty well connected inside the campaign at that early stage, don't ya think?

More significantly, here's what his bio says:

Ambassador Joe Wilson served a distinguished career as a diplomat for more than twenty years. He was the acting U.S. ambassador in Iraq during Operation Desert Shield and the last U.S. official to meet with Saddam Hussein before the first Gulf War. He was assigned in 2002 by Vice President Dick Cheney to investigate claims that Iraq was trying to buy Uranium for Niger.
Hmmmmm. Isn't this the man who's been going around swearing he NEVER SAID VP CHENEY SENT HIM?!

Now, there is NO other possible source for that bio info than from Wilson himself. At that time, his trip wouldn't be publicly reported for at least 4 more months.

Somebody needs to get this to KEN MEHLMAN AT THE GOP.

Unfortunately, the January, 2003 date appears to be a typo by the johnkerry.com DUmmies!

Look further down the page for the January, 2004 date for primary appearances.

I thought he had said the VP's office sent him. I don't see how this one is inconsistent with what he's said.
