Kevin Drum homes in on the conundrum at the center of Plamegate: since Wilson never really debunked the notion that Saddam had merely sought uranium from Niger, and that was all that the president had ever claimed, why did the Bushies over-react the way they did to Wilson’s first emergence on the scene? Kevin speculates that it’s because they knew something we didn’t at the time. His argument can be read here. It’s certainly plausible, if still only a theory. I have to say that as someone who trusted the administration not to consciously lie or mislead about their evidence for Saddam’s WMDs, I’d be pretty pissed if it turned out they did. We have no solid evidence for that, though. Yet.
