Snowstorm in Hell... WaPo backs Bush... pictures at 11
The Washington Post -- in a truly stunning development -- calls Joe Wilson a liar and backs President Bush's rationale for declassifying the NIE memos:
|The material that Mr. Bush ordered declassified established, as have several subsequent investigations, that Mr. Wilson was the one guilty of twisting the truth. In fact, his report supported the conclusion that Iraq had sought uranium...|
...Mr. Libby’s motive in allegedly disclosing her name to reporters, Mr. Fitzgerald said, was to disprove yet another false assertion, that Mr. Wilson had been dispatched to Niger by Mr. Cheney. In fact Mr. Wilson was recommended for the trip by his wife...
This is, in my estimation, the first time an MSM op-ed has called out Joe Wilson's litany of fabrications and validated the President's approach to releasing the facts.
History is being made here.
