According to presidential Advisor Karl Rove, former Ambassador “Joe Wilson was wrong [in his July 6, 2003, New York Times op-ed] when he twisted the Bush administration’s statement that Iraq had attempted to acquire uranium in Africa into a claim that Iraq had obtained uranium. Our argument was based on intent: we never suggested the Iraqi dictator [Hussein] succeeded in purchasing more than the 550 metric tons he already possessed.”
