I just spoke to Joseph Wilson about the special prosecutor
Advertisements [?]
About the US attorney who got named: "These guys are professionals. One former prosecutor told me last week that these guys are less interested in the politics and more interested in having that scalp on the wall. Beyond that, I dont have anything to add. This was not a crime committed against me or my wife. It was a crime committed against the country."

As for Fitzgerald, understand: He came from the Southern District of New York office. That is like playing for the New York Yankees. The fact that Fitzgerald worked there makes him, in all liklihood, an insanely excellent professional. That is the best office in the country, period, and is not political. The U.S. Attorneys in that office are usually kept on a year or two after a Presidential administration changeover, whereas the other offices get turned over almost immediately as part of the spoils system. That office has a lot of power, and is above politics, and is the best one in the system. This was in all liklihood a very solid pick.

Stay tuned.
