Uranium From Africa, Part 2

URANIUM FROM AFRICA, PART 2….Yesterday, writing about the period just before and after the war last year, I speculated that Joe Wilson might have decided to write his famous July 6 New York Times op-ed only after seeing (or hearing about) an internal CIA memorandum dated June 17 that conclusively debunked the uranium from Africa story. The full post is here.

Today, Wilson emails to say, “I never knew about the June 17 document you cite in the blog….I did not know about it then and only your blog brought it to my attention.”

So that’s that.
