Do we even know who made these decisions to send him?
I know I'm probably wrong but the last person on earth who should have been sent was Joe Wilson. Novack realized this , asked why, and someone said his wife worked for the CIA and recommended him (since proven to be true by the 9/11 report). Then the CIA is outraged that her name was leaked! Yet Novack called the CIA to confirm she worked there..they confirmed it and said..but don't tell anyone? Sounds ridiculous but I bet that's what happened
