Joe Wilson's Book

Joe Wilson's book, The Politics of Truth is being released today. I sense a B&N trip in my near future. Whoever's doing the pr is so far doing a bang-up job -- there's a very slick website and a long, long list of news appearances for Wilson over the next couple of weeks. Here's the frontpage blurb:
In 1991, President George H. W. Bush called Ambassador Joseph Wilson a “True American Hero.” In 2003, senior officials in President George W. Bush’s White House tried to intimidate critics and punish Wilson for what he knew—and finally made public—about the administration’s lies before the invasion of Iraq.

The disclosure of the undercover identity of Wilson’s wife, CIA operative Valerie Plame, was an unprecedented and potentially criminal act.

The Politics of Truth tells the revealing story of this courageous American diplomat and his pivotal career in foreign policy, from telling Saddam Hussein to leave Kuwait to confronting the White House leaks that have breached national security.
