I Saw Joe Wilson This Morning

He gave a talk at the Hinckley Institute. Dressed for skiing. He just bought a house in Eden.

This is a MUST HEAR for ANYONE interested in pure naked truth, right or wrong, honesty from a new Utah hero (someone who has nothing to gain and everything to lose, and has made the leap into citizen).

The Ambassador walked us right through the adminstration’s stated reasons for going to war in Iraq. He reminded us that the initial justification given, to sell congressional approval for the authority to go to war, was the bargaining leverage it brought to the negotiations with the UN Security Council.

I remember that too. I remember, at least in my mind thinking, nah, he won’t invade, he’s just posturing. OOoops.

And he “slams” some questions at the end…Novak, French claims, John Stewart vs. Bill O’Reilly, Bill Kristol.

Good skiing Joe. Welcome to Utah, and thank you!

    I was there. In the hallway.

    That room was full of hot under the collar young Freepers too. I know them.

    I believe some of them walked out humbled, and possibly headed for a time-out. A period of reassesment.

    After the first freeper hit him with French and the other confirmations of centrafuge this and yellow cake that, and he shut them down so gently, they were silenced. It was an embarassing revelation of how poorly we are informed by the MSM.

    Do you have a transcript? If not let me know and I’ll create one for you? If so, please email me and I will excerpt on my site. Great talk.

    I’m so sorry I missed this. I only had to walk over there from the Student Services Building. The Hinckley Institute does a terrible job of letting the rest of the campus know who’s speaking.

    I wasn’t able to be there, but if I could have asked a question it would have been this:

    If as President Bush has for so long touted us a a country at war, and if indeed leaking the names of our
    intelligence experts in a time of war is a crime of treason, why then isn’t Bush held to his word and inistructed by congress or the Judicial branch to bring these treasonous members of his cabinet to trial?
    And should they not be hung?

    Also, (as an afterthought,) I would ask Mr. Wilson, if he, (as I,) thinks the phrase “homeland security” does not have the flavor of Germany before WWII, or at the very least of George Orwell’s depictions of a society at the end of it’s health? Homeland Security is not an American phrase, by tone, it’s a phrase depicting a non democratic societies brown shirted thugs, seeking retribution to all who disagree with it’s leaders.
