Joe Wilson, Iraq war supporter?
The darling of the anti-war left may be working overtime to bring down the Bush administration for "outing" his CIA wife, but Wilson said Saturday that the White House was right to go to war over Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.
"There was a lot of reason to be concerned about weapons of mass destruction in the hands of Saddam Hussein," he told WABC Radio's Mark Simone. "I always thought that he probably had chemical and biological weapons and biological precursors as well."
Wilson said his primary policy difference with President Bush wasn't over Saddam's WMDs, but rather on the question of "how to construct a policy that gets to the national security issue of disarming Saddam Hussein and does so at minimum risk to other legitimate U.S. interests both in Iraq and in the region."
But aside from that, Wilson said he cheered President Bush's decision to topple the Iraqi dictator, telling Simone: "When the president went up to the U.N. and got the [war] resolution unanimously passed at the U.N., nobody applauded louder than I did."
Is this satire? Do I need glasses? or is he afraid of something if Fitzgerald goes forward with this new Grand Jury?
Joe Wilson, the John Kerry of ambassadors.
Say what? What is going on with this?
Who cares. He's a liar.
He's been all over the lot on this.
In January, 2003, he was arguing against invading Iraq -- because a.) Saddam had WMD and b.) would use them.
Something BIG is coming down the track. Wilson should end up in jail for treason and lies.
Against the war before he was for the war.
I know you don't make things up, Carl, so I am just shaking my head here. I really don't get this.
It's unfortunate we ended up with a political hack in Fitz...he's goin' after the WH and the WH ONLY...the wilsons' are safe from Fitz.
I don't want Joe Wilson on my side.
It's all on tape.
Simone had asked Wilson how he could have gone to work for John Kerry, when Kerry had been one of the biggest proponents of the WMD threat.
Wilson answered with the quotes in my report.
Bush right to attack Iraq?
After looking at how the mideast is unfolding and where the real wmd's are perhaps the following line is more in order
Bush right to attack Iran
Helter Skelter!!! Topsy-Turvy!!! Dave? Dave? What are you doing? It's alright Hal.... Dave?
Something stinks in this whole "outing" of a CIA analyst gig. I'd like to know why the CIA sent a DemocRAT hack to Africa so he could return to the U.S. and write books and articles that undermine Bush's war on terror.
Joe is defending Bush Sr. over the first Gulf war where he left Saddam in power to run his scams. He is not defending Bush Jr. over the second gulf war where the socialist money tree (food for oil, weapons for oil, yellowcake uranium for oil....) was disrupted. That war hurt the international criminals and they are still reacting to the loss of income and send out the demorats chanting "Bush Lied, the Money Cow Died!".
I don't think so. Bush 1 went after Hussein because they invaded Kuwait. It was this president who used the WMD argument. Besides the question that elicited this answer was about why he wanted to work for Kerry.
Rats starting to jump a sinking ship
"Simone had asked Wilson how he could have gone to work for John Kerry, when Kerry had been one of the biggest proponents of the WMD threat."
It could also be noted that after Kerry took him under his wing, he saw him for what he was. Meaning, he was too dangerous of a loose wheel to be associated with.
That was explained pretty well by Mona Charen
It seems the CIA has moved into the character assassination business with the Bush administration as a prime target.
Wow...I am really surprised....is this true?
A little bit of literary daydreaming.
Joe threw back the sheets. What Valerie said couldn't be true. "You're analysis of my trip said what? What are you....you're working for your country again and against me all of a sudden?"
Valerie was stunned. She felt like she had been punched in the stomach. The one person whom she trusted with all her secrets since their third date had betrayed her. She never even suspected that he would write an newspaper article about his Niger trip.
She would have stopped it....not because of her position... but because she knew the real story behind Joe's trip and remembered the day when Mr. X sat down at her desk with HER file in his hand and turned to page 6.
She turned over and wished it would all go away...That he would go away and leave her and the twins to whatever destiny was before them.
She knew one thing: Country was first. Children were blood. Their love was free and would endure. Her husband's was conditional. It was at an end!!
Uh-oh, Chrissy Matthews and Timmy Russert are NOT going to like that....
I betcha he won't be asked on their shows again for a while..hehe
I didn't think of that...but you two prolly are right..there HAS to be a reason he said that...
After all, he was on the same panel with Cindy Sheehan, in front of the dems...trying to set the table to get an impeachment against Bush...
Gotta wonder if the news about the FBI investigating the origin of the forged Niger documents has anything to do with this.
Joe must be getting nervous about the Niger memo investigation being restarted.
He was initially against the war because he feared massive US casualties from chemical weapons. He's a flip flop traitor!
The Democratic Underground is not going to like this...
What does he know that we don't? It seems he is covering his tracks for some reason.
Now he's for the war, but not the way the war is being prosecuted?
If I remember correctly, Clarke was for the war before he was against the war too.
LOL! What's this, the notes to a new Harlequin Romance? These two got in over their heads and are about to find out what the word treason means. Could be they won't be seeing the twins for a while.
Wilson putting his finger in the air?
I smell a RAT, and her name is HRC!
I still have a curiousity that sticks in my head.
Did Jacqueline and Valerie know each other? Were they even perhaps, good friends? It's not unusual for men to marry "her best friend". Why has Jacqueline remained overseas?
Joe and Valerie stayed at the Watergate before they were married. How many folks on the Watergate staff knew Valerie Plame? Who attended Joe and Valerie's wedding? Who took care of Joe's divorce and attached assets? (wolf)? Why did someone write that Valerie had to change some assets when she was outed?
HRC: Absolutely!! Joe has been ordered to get on the right page (or else)....which is in agreement with Hillary's vote. Hillary will likely be appearing with Timmee Russert very shortly.
Don't they ALL just stick their fingers in the air? Unless you are Bubba of course...then you stick something else in the air....
