Amb. Joseph Wilson’s Opening Statement To The HJC Today

While we are awaiting the resumption of the HJC hearing, I thought folks who hadn’t been able to follow the webcast would appreciate a snippet from today’s testimony.  The above YouTube is the full testimony given by Amb. Wilson.  From the opening statement given by Amb. Joseph Wilson to the House Judiciary Committee, this is a good synopsis:

Ultimately this concerted effort to discredit me, ruining my wife’s career along the way has had a larger objective. This matter has always been about this administration’s case for war and its willingness to mislead the American people to justify it.

Thanks to the Speaker’s Gavel blog for getting the video stream excerpt up so quickly. We’ll link up the full transcript when and if it becomes available.
