"The Americans are concerned over a visit to Katanga by the head of the Iraqi Baath party's international relations section, Shabi Al Maliki, around a year ago. He, too, showed an interest in Katanga's uranium, and last February another high-ranking Iraqi official reportedly held talks in Kinshasa with the mines minister in the last government of the Mobutu era, Banza Mukalay. The uranium is thought to have also figured in Libya's proposals in 1995 to supply oil to Zaire in exchange for ore."
So the Democrats claim that Iraq qasn't interested in Uranium and have Wilson running around spreading their lies. In the meantime, the Clinton administration knew very well that Iraq had been trying to buy Uranium all the back in 1997. Maybe that is what Sandy "the Burglar" was stuffing in his pants.

The entire existence of the Clintons and everything they have touched IS A LIVING LIE. This POS should have been put in Federal prison for the rest of his life for what he did to this country. The Impeachment was totally inadequate -- just another indicator of a failed Washington government.

Could somebody please explain to me how, exactly, a political hack such as Wilson "investigated" Iraqi activities in Africa?
"Did the Iraqis ever come here?"
"Of course not!"
"Well, that's good enough for me. Let's have another round of drinks brought to the pool."

We need a working link for this story, please.
If we know Iraq was trying to obtain uranium in 1997, what's the point of arguing about whether they were seeking uranium now?
If you go back into reports from the 90's, at one point the North Koreans had troops guarding a Congo uranium mine!
I believe Bush's original quote in the SOU was that British intelligence indicated that Iraq had sought uranium ore from AFRICA. The country of Niger was only one of several possible "AFRICAN" sources and the spin on focusing on Niger is quite inexplicable to me.
