African uranium
By Tom Smith

Call me a cynic, but I have a hard time believing Wilson would go to so much trouble to throw investigators off the scent of a Nigerian uranium deal just because he was a partisan critic of Bush's policy. What if any were Wilson's business interests in Africa? Did he have reason to suck up to public officials in Niger? Like maybe big, fat consulting contracts in his future? Maybe he's doing the French thing.
