WILSON AND NOVAK….Tim Dunlop is reading Joe Wilson’s book for us. What a stand up guy!

Today’s he’s got an interesting excerpt: it turns out Wilson talked to Robert Novak several days before Novak’s infamous July 14 column in which he outed Wilson’s wife, Valerie Plame, as a CIA agent, and told him that speculating on his wife’s CIA connections was dangerous and irresponsible. In other words, writing what he did in his column that day wasn’t a momentary lapse in judgment on Novak’s part. He knew very well he was doing someting dishonorable and he went ahead and did it anyway.

Details are here.
