Fan, say hello to Shit. Shit, meet Fan

Joseph Wilson is the man who exposed the Bush administration’s Niger-yellowcake lie. In return, a “senior administration official” has outed Wilson’s wife as a CIA operative, according to right-wing columnist Robert Novak. This has sparked a lot of discussion.

And now a British weapons advisor, apparently the man behind the whole yellowcake story, has turned up dead.

  1. John Le Carre, who has badmouthed the Bush admin constantly since last fall at least for its Iraq adventure, wrote at least two novels which, with hindsight, describe important aspects of the Iraq intel mess. One is Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. The other, which (in movie form at least, I haven’t yet read the novel) is even more relevant, is The Tailor of Panama.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see him come out with eg. “The Cowboy of Baghdad” sometime in the near future.
