Clifford May is described as "a former New York Times foreign correspondent" and "the president of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies," which is "a policy institute focusing on terrorism." Here is is National Review On-Line piece, pretty much shredding Joseph Wilson. His concluding paragraph gives us all a taste of the rest of the column:
"[B]ased on one op-ed declaring 16 words spoken by the president a lie, [Wilson] transformed himself into an instant celebrity and, for a while, it seemed, a contender for power within the . . . world of foreign policy. That dream has now probably evaporated. It is hard to see how a President John Kerry would now want Wilson in his inner circle. But if he desired to return to Gabon or Niger I, for one, would not be among those opposing him."
