    That was your lie.

    Hans Blix said the UN inspectors had access to where ever they went:


    "In my 27 January [2003] update to the Council, I said that it seemed from our experience that Iraq had decided in principle to provide cooperation on process, most importantly prompt access to all sites and assistance to UNMOVIC in the establishment of the necessary infrastructure. This impression remains, and we note that access to sites has so far been without problems, including those that had never been declared or inspected, as well as to Presidential sites and private residences." ~ Hans Blix
    Um, no I didn't. I said that he was never fully cooperative.

    A reported contract.

    Which turned out to be a forgery AND Condoleezza Rice said on MTP 6/8/2003 was the basis for the SOTU speech. So what does Joe Wilson think when he sees her on the tube?

    At the time Wilson was dispatched, no document was in hand, so there could be no question of a forgery. Wilson had no grounds to conclude anything. He certainly had no right to conclude that the report he knew about was the only report.

    I disagree, he concluded that such a sale was impossible. He didn't say there was a forgery, he didn't learn that until March 2003.

    No one ever claimed there was a sale, only a contract. The British never even claimed there was a contract, only an inquiry. Wilson didn't know that, and the nuance seems to have escaped Rice.

    Joe Wilson was the last person to confront Saddam Hussein before Desert Storm

    When Hussein sent a note to Wilson (along with other embassy heads in Baghdad) threatening to execute anyone sheltering foreigners in Iraq, Wilson publicly repudiated the dictator by appearing at a press conference wearing a homemade noose around his neck and declaring, "If the choice is to allow American citizens to be taken hostage or to be executed, I will bring my own ****ing rope." [8] Despite Hussein's threats, Wilson sheltered more than 100 Americans at the embassy and successfully evacuated several thousand people (Americans and other nationals) from Iraq. For his actions, he was called a "a true American hero" by President George H. W. Bush.[4]
