Wilson, anatomy of a Liberal
Friday, July 15, 2005
(SNN Washington) Former African ambassador Joseph Wilson stands at the center of a controversy over who in the White House told a journalist about the covert CIA operations of Wilson’s wife, Valerie Plame.

Wilson’s statements about the yellowcake uranium were dishonest. Wilson claims that Bush said that Iraq sought uranium ore from Niger, but Bush actually said that Saddam Hussein sought uranium ore from Africa. There are four countries in Africa that can produce yellowcake, including Gabon, South Africa, and Nambia. Just because the fake report that the Bush administration was using as evidence of the transaction referred to Niger doesn’t mean that they did not have additional fake documents involving Nambia.
But in addition to reporting that the document (later found to be fake) were fake, Wilson acted as a liberal plant during George H.W. Bush’s administration. Wilson did such a good job working for H.W. Bush that it caused senior Bush to praise Wilson for his "courage and tenacity" and his “skillful conduct of our tense dealings with the government of Iraq."

But his deceitful scheming didn’t stop there. When observed by colleagues, Wilson showed no preference for either party. “I had no idea what party he was in," said Peter Teeley, press secretary to senior Bush. “When he was in Baghdad he was recognized, and rightly so, as someone with a lot of courage. There was a lot of admiration for Joe and a lot of respect for the way he carried out his duties for the president and for the United States.” He even hid his true political feelings from the Clinton Administration. “The guy played very much down the middle of the road politically,” said Susan Rice, assistant secretary of state for African affairs in the Clinton administration.
Liberals like Wilson don’t know when to stop. To pull the wool over the eyes of conservatives, he even went as far as to vote twice for George H.W. Bush, vote for George W. Bush and donate $2000 to his 2000 election campaign. We can only be thankful that he has finally shown his colors as a liberal traitor. For, if there was a covert operative in the Wilson household, it was Joseph Wilson.
