She wasn't exactly lying.
She had nothing to do with him going to Niger.
He was going, (1999 and 2002), to Niger to handle affairs for his company.
She suggested to her bosses he do the 'spying' for them (her job) because he was accepted over there and not a spy, and he was going anyway.
Now, what does that company that Joe owns, do?
They brokered sales of yellowcake ore for the President of Niger. (They were working on a sale to Saddam. It had to be done through a third party. )
Joe was in the best position to find out if Saddam was trying to buy YO, because that's what Joe's company was selling.
They sold the ore to Libya, and Libya sold it to Saddam.
So, when he said Saddam wasn't buying it from Niger, he wasn't lying either.
The 'fake' documents of a sale came from collaboration between the Dems and French foreign agents as a means to hide the true facts. They made sure the documents were so obviously fake to ensure it would be discovered. When those documents were 'exposed' as fakes, the 'massage' was that no sales occurred if the documents were fake.
And everyone bought it.
Joe was the best person
oops. Ignore the last line.
the administration gave up way too early on making the case for the truth here, that the forged documents were planted as a poison pill to discredit what was otherwise a true story.
That's as coherent an explanation as I've seen anywhere.
I would wonder if the Clintons were in on the original set-up for the sale to Libya/Iraq. (And getting a cut of it, too, of course) That would explain the big guns acting on Wilson's wolf cry that Bush/Cheney was out to get him... all distraction while the real story got buried.
But they didn't take Fedora, Sam Hill, Enchante, Clarice and others into account. Heh, heh, heh. Wonder if that's why Hillary's showing off her stone cold breasts today....
I think YK went from Niger to Libya for both
Saddam's and Libyas use. Saddam's scientists were there,
so that program wouldn't be found out in Iraq.
Wilson's company worked with French company COGEMA, who got so called oil for food payoffs from Saddam. Cogema ran
Niger YK operations.So we have round robbin effect..
YK to Libya, money from Saddam to Cogema(Joe gets a cut),
Cogema pays Niger. Saddam's and Libya's program has
material. But when Saddam got captured, Libya caved, nuke program went to us, and most is locked up in TN & KY..
Sneaky bastards,Niger, Joe, Saddam, Libya, French, etc.Ed
