3. From most of what I have read, and from Wilson's statements most recently
Edited on Sun Nov-06-05 07:49 PM by grannylib
to the National Press Club, it was Cheney's office who initiated the request that someone go look into the matter of yellowcake uranium ore; the CIA sent Wilson AT the request of the VPs office.
The reThugs have twisted Wilson's words to make it sound like he is claiming that Cheney the Dick sent him to Niger; he never said anything of the kind.

On edit: not that Cheney's office specifically asked for Wilson; didn't want anyone to misunderstand the above; Cheney's office requested that SOMEONE be sent, and at that request the CIA chose Wilson for his expertise on mining and on the area of Africa in question.
