NewsMax.com reports today that President Bush didn’t lie when he said Iraq sought uranium in Africa in recent years.
And the Washington Times reports today that "newly translated Iraqi documents . . . tell of Saddam seeking uranium from Africa in the mid-1990s."
All this, NewsMax points out, following the statement made by Joseph Wilson, former ambassador to Iraq, to the New York Times: "I have little choice but to conclude that some of the intelligence related to Iraq’s nuclear weapons program was twisted to exaggerate the Iraqi threat."
As the article says, "The new documents strongly suggest, however, that Wilson was wrong – and that the ‘Bush lied’ mantra adopted by most Democrats since Wilson first made his complaint has been based on bogus information."
