Joseph Wilson, an ex-ambassador and National Security Council official
in the Clinton and first Bush administrations, sparked the "leak"
controversy in the first place by writing in The New York Times that
Bush had lied in his 2003 State of the Union address about Saddam
Hussein's seeking uranium in Africa for nuclear weapons.  

The CIA had sent Wilson to Niger in 2002 to check out precisely that
point, and he claimed to have debunked it. Later, the Senate
Intelligence Committee concluded that nearly everything Wilson wrote
or said about Bush, Cheney, Iraq, and his own trip to West Africa was
untrue. Wilson was a fraud.
