That's not true. The CIA group that Plame was associated with thought the idea that Hussein was attempting to obtain (more) yellowcake (from Niger) was ridiculous, justified that by arguing that because he already HAD this huge quantity they couldn't see him wanting more.
Exactly. The MSM and their left-wing blowhards continuously said this was a fools errand and that the mission to NIGER, WHICH WILSON SCRWED-UP, found nothing. Not to mention it was stupid to even try.
Funny then nobody (press or Democrats) mentions the Nigerian yellowcake already in country.
And if I remember correctly, when our troops got to Tuwaitha, they found some barrels of (can't remember what) but no nuclear material.
