Ambassador Joe Wilson On Iraq Interview

Ambassador Joe Wilson on Iraq – Interview by Josh Marshall

The full story of Ambassador Joe Wilson’s investigation of (fraudulent) claims that Iraq had signed a deal to buy uranium from Niger is given in his interview with Josh Marshall in Talking Points Memo. Wilson, who served in the US embassy in Iraq until the first Gulf War, also makes trenchant observations about the US mishandling of post-war Iraq. Recently Vice President Dick Cheney claimed never to have heard of Wilson, and Cheney also insisted on leaving open the possibility that Saddam had something to do with 9/11. Both statements were ill advised. Bush had to come out and contradict Cheney on the 9/11 canard. Presumably this is because it is now election season, and Karl Rove knows that the administration’s credibility is now fair game. And the Saddam-9/11 story is among the biggest fraud in American history. The first part of the extended and highly informative interview, which is a must read for anyone interested in the Iraq issue is at
