NEVER Said That the Vice President Sent Him
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” />
I get so sick of hearing the press and the Lizard Talking-Points Bloviators say that Joe Wilson “lied” about saying that the Vice President sent him to <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags” />Africa and that that's what Karlsputin was so virtuously “correcting.”
Over & over Mr. Wilson has said and this is straight from his What I Didn't Find In Africa NYT op-ed: “In February 2002, I was informed by officials at the Central Intelligence Agency that Vice President Dick Cheney's office had questions about a particular intelligence report. While I never saw the report, I was told that it referred to a memorandum of agreement that documented the sale of uranium yellowcake (a form of lightly processed ore) by Niger to Iraq in the late 1990's. The agency officials asked if I would travel to Niger to check out the story so they could provide a response to the vice president's office.” [my emphases]
Repeat after me: vice president's office .. vice president's office ..vice president's office ..
Repeat after me: The agency officials asked if I would travel to Niger .. The agency officials asked if I would travel to Niger .. The agency officials asked if I would travel to Niger ..
Joe Wilson thought the question they wanted answered was serious and important.
It's so frustrating that these damn Big Lies such as this pernicious canard about the “Vice President” are allowed to perpetuate without challenge. The core of Rove's 'excuse' for talking to reporters simply is not true.
You can read the whole actual Joe Wilson July 6, 2003 NYT op-ed piece.
