Ha, Another CBS Lie I Missed

| | Comments (0)

One day after Wilson's piece appeared, the White House acknowledged the president should not have used the uranium claim. But according to newly released court records, the vice president's chief of staff, Scooter Libby, leaked classified intelligence to reporters a day later in an effort to bolster the uranium story. What Scooter Libby didn't tell reporters is that the White House had been warned before the State of the Union speech not to use the Niger uranium claim.
Hey Ed Bradley, what part of the claims of Iraqi pursuit of natural uranium in Africa are, in INR's assessment, highly dubious do you not understand?

And of course, we also know Libby did not leak classified intelligence, as it was declassified.
