MB reader Jeanne B. spots a typical candidate:
It’s time to roll out the ole Dishonor Roll again. This morning’s LA Times article about Woodward includes this:
Wilson had been sent by the CIA to look into reports that Iraq had tried to buy uranium from Niger, and he had found little evidence to support the claims.
Administration officials are believed to have leaked Plame’s name as a way of undermining Wilson’s credibility.
Sigh. Wilson DID find evidence to support the claim that Iraq was “trying” to buy uranium from Niger. And then he lied about it… excuse me, he “misspoke”. And the reporter could just as well have written that Administration officials leaked Plame’s role in the affair to discredit Wilson’s widely circulated claims that V.P. Cheney was responsible for his trip. That would be no more or less true than what the article says.
Right on. See also:
