Just the Facts Sir

The N&O continues their tradition of dragging out every issue that might damage the Bush administration by running a Rove story for the 4th day. This one chooses to not mention some important information.

The article states: Wilson, on a mission authorized by the CIA, went to Niger to investigate whether Iraq was seeking uranium for nuclear bombs in Africa. He reported that there was not evidence to support that suspicion.

Now how hard would it be to clarify 2 issues. First, the Senate Intelligence Committee determined that Wilson did in fact find evidence to support the claim that Iraq had tried to buy uranium from Niger? Second, why not mention that Wilson claimed his wife had no role in deciding to send him to Niger, but the same committee later found he lied about that statement as well?

These are not opinions, just the facts sir.
