"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Cheney said Bush OK'd intelligence leak

"Her CIA status was publicly disclosed eight days after her husband, former U.S. Ambassador Joseph Wilson, accused the Bush administration of twisting prewar intelligence to exaggerate the Iraqi threat from weapons of mass destruction. In 2002, Wilson had been dispatched to Africa by the CIA to check out intelligence that Iraq had an agreement to acquire uranium yellowcake from Niger, and Wilson had concluded that there was no such arrangement. "

Her CIA employment was publicly disclosed after Joseph Wilson denied his wife had anything to do with his being selected to go to Niger to investigate alleged Iraqi attempts to acquire uranium yellowcake. Wilson isn't accused of "twisting" his findings in a NYTimes editorial, despite reporting differently to the CIA upon returning from Niger.

More garbage on the Wilson fink and or Libby, here, here, here, here and here.
