Novak On Wilson Etc.

Robert Novak has written a column everyone should read:

Wilson contradictions leave Democrat senators speechless


For a year, Democrats have been belaboring President Bush about 16 words in his 2003 State of the Union address in which he reported Saddam Hussein's attempt to buy uranium from Africa, based on British information. Wilson has been lionized in liberal circles for allegedly contradicting this information on a CIA mission and then being punished as a truth-teller. Now, for committee Democrats, it is as though the Niger question and Joe Wilson have vanished from the Earth.
Whether or not they admit the error of their ways...Vindication tastes so sweet!

By the way...why is Wilson not be prosecuted for something here? I don't have any idea whether or not he broke any laws...but misrepresentation of the facts would be the understatement of the year. Slander (Wilson's lies), libel, treason, etc., etc.?

I wonder if anything will come of this (besides public humiliation).


Libertarian Leanings has a great post on the Butler Report:

499. We conclude that, on the basis of intelligence assessments at the time, covering both Niger and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the statements on Iraqi attempts to acquire uranium from Africa in the Government’s dossier, and by the Prime Minister in the House of Commons, were well founded. By extension, we conclude also that the statement in President Bush’s State of the Union Address of January 28, 2003 that:

The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.

was well-founded.
