And How Are You, Mr. Wilson?
I am remiss in posting this; Scott from Power Line had this up more than a week ago!
But it's worth noting: the best timeline of the Plame-name blame-game imbroglio is by (no surprise) Stephen Hayes, writing in the Weekly Standard: "The White House, the CIA, and the Wilsons".
Note that the "unuseful idiot" of the category is creepy liar Joseph Wilson -- not Stephen F. Hayes!
Read it and shriek.

"A Little Literary Flair"
From the July 26, 2004 issue of The Weekly Standard
by Matthew Continetti
07/26/2004, Volume 009, Issue 43
However, committee Democrats, Roberts writes, "would not agree" to conclude publicly that much of Wilson's story was fabricated. Perhaps they were embarrassed. Many of them had grown to know Wilson socially over the last year, and many had adopted his cause as their own. Perhaps they did not want to embarrass the Kerry campaign, for which Wilson remains an unpaid adviser. Perhaps they did not want to embarrass media outlets like the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the New Republic, which published Wilson's falsehoods and have not yet retracted them. Wilson, for his part, has laid low since the committee released its report. He has not done any television interviews. He has refused most requests for interviews, period. On Thursday, July 15, Wilson sent out an email to a host of reporters--including many whom he had snookered months ago. Attached was a long, rambling letter to Pat Roberts and Jay Rockefeller, in which he disputes the Senate Intelligence Committee's findings. The idea his wife had suggested him for the Niger trip "is not true," Wilson wrote, adding that his wife's memo touting his credentials contains "no suggestion or recommendation in that statement that I be sent on the trip." Wilson's letter is mainly notable for what it does not mention. He does not dispute the committee's finding that he was wrong to say he knew his report had reached the vice president's office, when he had no way of knowing whether it had or hadn't. He does not admit he was wrong to tell reporters that he knew the forged documents were bogus, when he had not seen them at the time of his trip. He does not leave the door open for future discussions about his trip, either with Congress or with the press.

This is about investigating the current “White House”, even if the current “White House” broke no law. It is OK to side with the true Enemy in such cases.
i have been wanting to legally own an AK-47 for decades now. i am a *BLESSED* hermit, and America’s Enemies are about to deliver both the object of my desire, and ammunition for it.
May Karma prune America down to ‘Its’ Roots...
