UPDATE: The story cited below is a hoax–Capitol Hill Blue founder Doug Thompson now alleges that he was intentionally deceived by someone pretending to be Terry Wilkinson for the last 20 years (Thompson: “Erasing the stories doesn’t erase the fact that we ran articles containing information that, given the source, was probably inaccurate. And it doesn’t erase the sad fact that my own arrogance allowed me to be conned.”).
“The [Niger Uranium/Iraq] report had already been discredited,” said Terrance J. Wilkinson, a CIA advisor present at two White House briefings. “This point was clearly made when the President was in the room during at least two of the briefings.”
Bush’s response was anger, Wilkinson said.
“He said that if the current operatives working for the CIA couldn’t prove the story was true, then the agency had better find some who could,” Wilkinson said. “He said he knew the story was true and so would the world after American troops secured the country.”
Kevin points out that he couldn’t find anything about Wilkinson on Google, but (warning: flypaper logic ahead) I have to point out that Wilkinson wouldn’t be much of a CIA agent if you could find out what he’s up to on Google. In fact, that’s virtually proof that he is a CIA agent.
Note that Capitol Hill Blue‘s masthead says “Because nobody’s life liberty or property is safe while Congress is in session” and another front page story in the magazine reports that “Britney Spears ain’t wearing a chastity belt any more. In fact, she gave it up some time ago, to then-long time boyfriend Justin Timberlake…Spears says she gave in to Timberlake after dating him for two years.” So don’t get too excited about this story (the uranium story–feel free to get excited by the Spears story if you are so inclined). Yet.
UPDATE: Quick, go read this. Hilarious, wish I had thought of it.
