Smearing Joe Wilson, Again

The Washington Post's editorial page is at it again, smearing someone who dared expose the Bush administration's Iraq War deceptions. The whipping boy this time is former Ambassador Joseph Wilson who had the audacity to challenge George W. Bush's false claims about Iraq trying to buy uranium from Africa. In an upside-down editorial, the Post is now blaming Wilson for the administration's exposure of his CIA wife's identity. September 1, 2006
Conservative pundits are claiming that the White House was vindicated by the disclosure that former State Department official Richard Armitage may have been the first official to tell a reporter about Valerie Plame's CIA identity. But that doesn't change the relevant fact that White House aides willfully peddled Plame's covert identity to some half dozen reporters. In this guest essay, political analyst Brent Budowsky calls the Armitage story a meaningless diversion from the treachery committed by top aides to George W. Bush. August 31, 2006
