Joseph Wilson: Bald-Faced Liar; Karl Rove: Fibber? And-- What Do We Really Know About All This, Anyway?
Joe Wilson is going to be on the Today Show this morning. Professor Jim Lindgren at The Volokh Conspiracy has some questions that he would like to see asked. Along the way, Lindgren provides an excellent summary of what has really happened here. This is a must-read. (HT: InstaPundit.)
Clearly Wilson is an amazing liar-- not a good one, just an audacious one. (Bill Clinton was both good and audacious.) Karl Rove, on the other hand, is looking a little like a liar too-- not like a law-breaker, necessarily, but like someone who may end up in a real bind. If Rove lied about his involvement in this silly matter, President Bush may be in a bind too. Rove is not out of the woods yet.
UPDATE: Viewing the matter in yet another light, Byron York summarizes some of the important things we don't know about the Wilson-Plame matter. This is another must-read. (HT: Power Line.)
