Notes on the Atrocities

Chris at Interesting Times quotes a startling passage from a Capitol Hill Blue report:

An intelligence consultant who was present at two White House briefings where the uranium report was discussed confirmed that the President was told the intelligence was questionable and that his national security advisors urged him not to include the claim in his State of the Union address.

"The 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."

Capitol Hill Blue? Nope, I've never heard of it, either. But if Wilkinson exists, and he was a CIA advisor, and if he was in the room when Bush got the news, this could be the elusive evidence of a lie. Once and for all, we'll be able to say Bush has made a complete Horlicks of the Presidency. And Wilkinson, bless his heart, will suffer the indignity of being called Terry Blue Dress.

And that, friends, is the conspiracy rumor of the day.
