Today The Washington Post editorial page said the following:
"It now appears that the person most responsible for the end of Ms. Plame’s CIA career is Mr. Wilson. Mr. Wilson chose to go public with an explosive charge, claiming — FALSELY, as it turned out — that he had debunked reports of Iraqi uranium-shopping in Niger and that his report had circulated to senior administration officials."
"He ought to have expected that both those officials and journalists such as Mr. Novak would ask why a retired ambassador would have been sent on such a mission and that the answer would point to his wife."
Wilson knew this, and The Post accuses Wilson directly by saying:
"He diverted responsibility from himself and his FALSE CHARGES by claiming that President Bush’s closest aides had engaged in an illegal conspiracy. IT’S UNFORTUNATE THAT SO MANY PEOPLE TOOK HIM SERIOUSLY."
What’s REALLY a shame is that so many bush-hating journalists happily and knowingly helped spread the lie. and even MORE of a shame is that the special prosecuter Fitzgerald KNEW who the original leaker was ON DAY ONE OF HIS INVESTIGATION AND SMEARED ROVE AND LIBBY ANYWAY!
Democrats, liberals and their press cronies sVck azz so bad…
