#1 I did a google search yesterday on "Joseph Wilson" to see whether there were stories that included his wife's CIA connection prior to Novak's article. Reviewed the titles and dates of about half of the 2600 hits. Looks like the information wasn't in the public domain prior to the article.

It was interesting to see the date spread on the hits with peaks being in early July, late July, Mid August then the tsurinami on the last couple days of September and in to October.

Another interesting tidbit was that Joseph was a regular on American Morning with Paula Zauhn during the ramp up to the invasion. He seemed pretty even-handed about the "case for war" and didn't mention his trip to Niger.

He was chosen as an expert for interviews in January and March because he was the Deputy Ambassador to Iraq prior to the Gulf War I - which I didn't know. He was the last American official to talk to Saddam before the war and heroically harborred Western civilians in the Embasssy - defying Sadaam.

Why would you make television appearances a regular gig if your wife was a covert opperator?

#2 Read some more stuff on Wilson - once did a press conference while wearing a noose for a necktie to make a joke about Sadaam regime, while Wilson was still in Baghdad. Also he lived in France for a number of years and wears cufflinks.

Could be mentally unhinged.
