The Endless Smearing of Joe Wilson

By Robert Parry
July 26, 2008

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee reminded everyone that rules barred personal attacks on George W. Bush during Friday’s hearing on his presidential abuses, but they didn’t feel obliged to forego the lashing of a favorite whipping boy, former U.S. Ambassador Joseph Wilson.

In a continuation of what has amounted to a five-year campaign to destroy Wilson’s reputation, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, flourished two pieces of evidence that supposedly showed that Wilson was a perjurer and that President Bush was right all along when he accused Iraq of seeking yellowcake uranium from Niger.

Joe Wilson did a college tour with a pair of reporter types who typified the sort of intelligence operative/analysts that make me more than nervous for the security and quality of our information as a "free" and "democratic" society. Mr Wilson responded to my question about reporters who were dismissed by a McClatchy editor in Florida for accepting money from the government, ala Armstrong Williams and quite possibly a majority of national mouthpieces who pollute our airwaves. The editor was subsequently dismissed and the "reporters" rehired. Mr Wilson stated he supported their freedom of speech. I wasnt too surprised, given the company he was keeping on that tour, but Im not sure why free speech has to be supplemented by extracurricular funding. We have been snookered by covert propagandists for so many decades, I can scarcely feel much love for partisan pariahs who are either part and parcel or a coconspirator of the spook disinformation networks that bring us anything but substantive discussion. He's a dirtbag, with a partisan agenda that has no room for the common interests of oppressed and ignorant citizens.
