I'm pretty sure that you are right...in any case, Wilson was already working for the Kerry campaign when he wrote the Op-Ed.
Also, this article goes back to the reason why some CIA analysts said that Iraq wouldn't have been seeking yellowcake from Niger: These analysts argued that Iraq already had plenty from the previous purchase.
Another thing of note: Compare the President's wording that Iraq was seeking yellowcake from Niger to Wilson and the MSM's argument that Niger had not sold them any. From the beginning there was clearly intentional distortion of the argument by all of those talk shows and articles - not just Wilson.
Also, don't forget that Wilson has been claiming that he went over to the Kerry campaign (and then went public with his accusations) because he was so angry about Bush's "sixteen words" in the State of the Union speech.
But, here we have evidence Wilson was already campaigning for Kerry in the week of January 13th....the SOTU wasn't until January 28th!
I wish we could find a record of what Wilson said on his little foray into New Hampshire politics. How much you want to bet he beat the drum of "Bush lied about the war"?
If nothing else, it's pretty apparent the whole Wilson brouhaha was a Kerry dirty trick set up....dependent on a willing MSM, of course.
