Lies exposed

Brian Augustine wants the Coverup exposed,November 2, 2005
Everyone says that this outing of a CIA agent is a partisan affair, so be it. The fact is that this indiscretion was aimed at covering up lies that took us into a war. That war has now cost us 2,000 patriotic American lives and counting. It is also becoming increasingly clear the whole basis was based on lies.
I am not sure who “Everyone” is, but I am worndering if it is Joe Wilson’s lies that Brian is refering. See Max Boot's list in the LA Times.

Joe Wilson, whatever you think of what he did, didn't lie. After all, Russ, we never found the yellow cake, did we? We never found any evidence of a nuclear program. So Wilson was right. But you and the right continues to claim that he was "discredited", which is utter revisionist crap.

Ok, what about the 500 tons of uranium that was found and removed. Under your definitiona this is not evidence of a nuclear program? Really?

No, Wilson just failed to tell the whole truth in his OP-ED. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence found that Joseph Wilson himself told his CIA debriefer that the Nigerien prime minister (and former minister of mines) had stated that the Iraqis conducted secret negotiations to buy something from Niger -- and that the prime minister believed that "something" was yellowcake uranium (as opposed to animal hides or cowpeas, Niger's other exports).

Where is your evidence the right is pushing crap? I suggest you go back ad see what the President said. He said that the Brits found that Saddam was trying to buy yellow cake, not that he bought it.

Lets have Wilson and his wife go before Congress under oath? Let's see what the truth is, when faces with jail if he does not tell the truth.
