Missing Wilson Talking Points

There are two points that I believe should be stressed at every opportunity on this subject and don't understand why they are not.

1. Even if you are like the media and ignore the fact that Joe Wilson's Niger report seemed to have bolstered the allegations of British intelligence, Mr. Wilson's statements are untrue. Mr. Wilson keeps saying he "proved" the president was lying in the State of the Union. Joe Wilson could not "prove" the British allegations regarding Saddam as false. He could only confirm or not confirm evidence to support the British Intelligence report. The very significant distinction between "proving" a claim as false and "not confirming" a claim as true have been lost.

2. President Bush could call a press conference and say those "16 words" in the State of the Union and they would still be true.
