What Say You?

Aaron Soragan writes:

Columnist Robert Novak said Saturday Ambassador Joe Wilson did not forcefully object to the naming of his CIA operative wife, Valerie Plame Wilson, when Novak spoke to him prior to the publication of a column that sparked a federal investigation and sent White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby to jail.

“He was not terribly exercised about it,” Novak said.

Instead, Wilson focused on not being portrayed as simply an opponent of the Iraq war. Wilson also stressed that his wife went by his last name, Wilson, rather than Plame, Novak said.

Fine. But are both sides of this story important? Of course and we want to know Joe Wilson's side of the story. But Aaron didn't make the call to Wilson, so Greg Sargent did:

"He's lying," Wilson responded a few moments ago when I reached him on his cell phone.

What? Imagine that--the old waterhead is lying? Is it possible? Maybe Novak's convict buddy will clear it up for us. Don't worry Bob the former Cheerleader still has some ink left in his pardon pen.
