    The Italian businessman at the centre of a furious row between France and Italy over whose intelligence service was to blame for bogus documents suggesting Saddam Hussein was seeking to buy material for nuclear bombs has admitted that he was in the pay of France.The man, identified by an Italian news agency as Rocco Martino, was the subject of a Telegraph article earlier this month in which he was referred to by his intelligence codename, "Giacomo". His admission to investigating magistrates in Rome on Friday apparently confirms suggestions that - by commissioning "Giacomo" to procure and circulate documents - France...

    During a speech "flogging" his book Wilson took shots at Bush: "Former Ambassador and Bush Administration critic Joe Wilson was seemingly preaching to the choir Saturday in City Hall. Not one dissenting voice was heard." Snip "The Bush administration sent Wilson to Niger to investigate the accusation that Saddam Hussein was trying to buy nuclear materials to construct weapons of mass destruction. Wilson said he determined it was untrue and reported that in February 2002 to Vice President Dick Cheney." Wilson said: "This was not a simple mistake...It was cleverly calculated to deceive the Congress of the United States, the...

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- Last week, the presidential campaign of Democratic candidate Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) very publicly distanced itself from former National Security Advisor Samuel "Sandy" Berger after it became known that Berger was under investigation for removing highly classified documents from the National Archives. Talon News reported that Kerry's anti-terror policy was removed from the candidate's web site immediately following Berger's dismissal as a campaign advisor. But in the last few days, another advisor has apparently been jettisoned from the Kerry campaign. All traces of former Ambassador Joe Wilson, the central figure in the controversy of faulty intelligence...

    Former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, dispatched by the CIA in February 2002 to investigate reports that Iraq sought to reconstitute its nuclear weapons program with uranium from Africa, was specifically recommended for the mission by his wife, a CIA employee, contrary to what he has said publicly. -------- snip! ---------- Wilson's assertions -- both about what he found in Niger and what the Bush administration did with the information -- were undermined yesterday in a bipartisan Senate intelligence committee report. ...
  • 10 reasons to disbelieve Joe Wilson: Kevin McCullough casts skeptical eye at 'injured' diplomat

    Joe Wilson is living the high life. He is riding a wave of attention that all true sycophants love. Anywhere you turn the television on – there he is. For someone who is concerned about privacy and protecting his very private life, he is making even left-leaning journalists believe he is in this current tussle for the style, the gloss – not the substance. On with Ted Koppel, looking somber and sober, he again states the charges that Wilson is being politically targeted by a mean and cruel administration that is out to injure and harm him and his poor...

    I was surprised when President Bush stated in his most recent State of the Union Address that Saddam Hussein had recently been seeking to purchase uranium in Africa. Nevertheless, the notion was not at all implausible. The president has since admitted he was relying on faulty intelligence, and now paradoxically is having his credibility challenged (should he have not admitted?); but one reason the erroneous report may have had staying power inside the intelligence community is that Africa had been a major, long-term source for Iraq's uranium. And whether or not Saddam attempted such purchases in recent years, he successfully...
