Skip to comments.Joseph Wilson's Amazing Left-Wing Dreamland
Posted on 07/23/2005 8:44:08 AM PDT by macsmind76
AS THE SEEMINGLY ENDLESS SPIDERWEB OF LIES SPUN BY former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV unravels, the media has gone out of its way to question the credibility of
Karl Rove. Despite Roves demonstrable non-leak of Valerie Plames non-secret identity, the dogs continue to gather, hungry for a second term scandal, while the Wilsons blatant self-promotion erodes whatever basis they had for a story in the first place. Perhaps Joe Wilsons two biggest whoppers were his claim to have spoken out because of his deep, non-partisan commitment to truth, and his inconsolable remorse that his wifes closely guarded anonymity had become collateral damage in the Bush administrations war against him. What is at risk of being lost in the media hype of Karl Roves leak is that Plame and Wilson had deep-seated ideological opposition to the Niger trip they set up, Plame apparently spiked that trip in advance, and she had long ago blown her status as a secret CIA agent.

Joseph Wilson discredited reliable reports from MI6 for the sole purpose of scoring a cheap political point off of President Bush.
I don't know what to do with that kind of selfishness and stupidity. Perhaps some of your Texans do.
Know your enemy!!
These jerks are desperate and will stoop to anything to take over this country! They have no bottom, they have no honor!
Magicians are masters of illusion - Leftists are the best Magicians!! (As are Islampires)!!!
Biggest whoppers? Then if what he said about Niger was mostly true, then there are a lot of whoppers around????
My wife's name is Mrs. Joseph Wilson. It is Mrs.Valerie Wilson.
Plame was just her "Nom de Plume." I think the only legitimate target here is the way Wilson was using the press (the Nicholas Kristof column of NYT 5/6/03) to disseminate a slanted anti-Bush version just weeks into the war. This was long before the famed Op-Ed piece he wrote.
Joseph Wilson also lied about his Niger yellowcake report. All of which is enough to make him a hero for a certain type of liberal.
Wilson also lied about the content of his Niger yellowcake report. Those two facts alone are enough to make him a hero to a certain type of liberal.
I just thought I would point out...to believe that Karl Rove did absolutely nothing wrong...you have to believe there is conspiracy by the CIA, the democrats, and the overwhelming majority of the mainstream press, and of course Mr. Wilson and Mrs. Plame are involved too. You have to believe all three of these groups on conspiring together..to believe that Karl Rove is totally innocent.
Doesnt anybody find this scenario bit tinfoil hattish?
...to believe that Karl Rove did absolutely nothing wrong...
Well, gee. We all do know that the mainstream media is just an arm of the Republican Party.
You are not good with facts, are you?
Ivan, read my post #6 - it's about leftist illusion.
This is one of the most concise stories I have ready on this matter. Thanks for posting!
Ever occur to you that things may be just be in a heap?
"Ever occur to you that things may be just be in a heap?"
Care to elaborate what you mean by "heap"?
"These facts are well-known to the media. Thirty-six mainstream media organizations including the White House Correspondents filed an amici curiae brief on behalf of Judith Miller pointing all these facts out. Yet they continue howling for Karl Roves head. Like George W. Bushs non-scandal at the National Guard, this is becoming the non-story that refuses to go away.
The media is very good at conspiring with the democrats. They've been caught before...Remember Rathergate?
You touched on an issue that at best appears complex, I call it a heap!
I don't know much about the Judith Miller affair, it appears confusing, though.
well first off..two group conspiring versus THREE groups conspiring is alot different.
Second of all Rathergate was no conspiracy..CBS didnt know the memo was forged..they were sloppy and didnt pick up on the forgery.
And do you know why they didnt pick up on the forgery, the reason is because quite frankly the forged memo was a small part of there story..the had loads of corraborating evidence that corroborated the content of the memo.
It be similar to faking a DNA test on a crime scene when u have 4 other pieces of evidence supporting the crime was committed by Mr. X. If you have 4 other piece of evidence, your not likely to ask yourself, I wonder if the crimelab faked the DNA test.
