Leaky Leaks


Bye bye Cheney:
Vice President Dick Cheney directed his then-chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, on July 12, 2003 to leak to the media portions of a then-highly classified CIA report that Cheney hoped would undermine the credibility of former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson, a critic of the Bush administration's Iraq policy, according to Libby's grand jury testimony in the CIA leak case and sources who have read the classified report.

The previously unreported grand jury testimony is significant because only hours after Cheney reportedly instructed Libby to disclose information from the CIA report, Libby divulged to then-New York Times reporter Judith Miller and Time magazine correspondent Matthew Cooper that Plame was a CIA officer, and that she been involved in selecting her husband for the Niger mission.

"The credibility of former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson..."


The credibility of Joseph Wilson?

Hold that thought and check out what a couple of liberal leaning publications have to say about that...

Of course, Christopher Hitchens really knows how to distill Joe down to basics:

"...the laugh outloud clown figure who we all knew not to take seriously."

The link I posted to the Hitchens interview only contains the first part...the second part, where he describes Wilson as "a man absolutely bereft of the smallest rag of credibility" is here:

(Well, yes, I can say denial...but I don't know what you are refering to..)
