This week on Speaking Freely, host Dennis Raimondi has an interview with former Ambassador Joe Wilson, who came into KRUU-FM studios.
Former Ambassador Joe Wilson

Wilson was in town stumping for Hillary Clinton. Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, is the CIA covert operative allegedly outed by administration officials in retaliation for Wilson's Op-ed piece in the NY Times. Wilson's personal and direct challenge caused the President to withdraw claims Bush made in his 2003 State of the Union address that Saddam Hussein was seeking yellowcake uranium for nuclear weapons, the White House's central justification for invading Iraq.

Plame has just released a book, "Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House," about her experiences which led to Dick Cheney's chief of staff Scooter Libby being convicted of perjury. Libby's sentence was commuted by President Bush this past July. 'Fair
Game' was the term the president's then-chief strategist, Karl Rove, used regarding the vicious smear campaign unleashed against Plame and Wilson, in hopes of softening the serious blow to White House credibility.
