Wilson to speak on politics, wife Plame

Former U.S. Ambassador Joseph Wilson will speak in Ventura County in May as part of the Ventura County Speakers Series, organizers announced this week.

Wilson and his wife, Valerie Plame, were at the center of a national controversy that began in 2003 when Plame's identity as a CIA agent was leaked to the media.

Although no one has been charged as responsible for the leak, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney, was indicted for covering up facts regarding his role in the leak. Libby's case is planned to go to trial early this year.

Wilson, who was an ambassador to African nations and Iraq, is expected to speak about his book "The Politics of Truth: A Diplomat's Memoir: Inside the Lies that Led to War and Betrayed My Wife's CIA Identity," said Mary Pallant, the host of the speaker series.

He also will update the audience about his current situation.

This event is planned for May 19 at California Lutheran University.

Better yet, let him take the money from the leftists. Less money they have for useful things.

Leftists like being charged money for M-bation sessions.

Since the Justice Department obviously will not investigate this little twerp, here's hoping someone brings a civil suit.

Hasn't this guy hit his 15 minutes yet? Sheesh.

Although no one has been charged as responsible for the leak

That's because no crime was committed in "leaking" her name! What is wrong with these media idiots?

Wife Plame? Is she still married to that loser? I figured they'd be divorced by now.

Mary Pallant on ''An Inconvenient Truth''

I just returned home from viewing Al Gore's documentary: An Inconvenient Truth. Wow! This is a must see for everyone. As I sat in the theater, a thought entered my mind, and perhaps many others: if President Gore was in the White House we would not even need to promote this or publicize it. We would not need to work diligently to adopt many of the recommendations. We would be living them.

Good post, Potlatch!
I can't believe this case is still hanging on.
Hey, everybody, it was ARMITAGE, aided and abetted by Colin Powell. Anyone listening? Anyone? Fitzmas should be disbarred and jailed. He can share a cell with Nifong.
