  •  Wilson deserves the Medal of Freedom (6+ / 0-)
    for his pugnacity.  Bing, bang, boom.  Pow!  Right in the kisser.   Thanks for this exceptional diary.  One of the most heartening things I have read in ages.

      it's honor has been besmirched by the bushit regime, by giving it to the likes of Irving Krystol, Paul Bremer, Tommie Franks and George Tenet.  I think theirs should be rescinded, to restore the honor that was intended.

      But, I do agree Joe Wilson deserves one.  If not for his willingness to tell the truth, where would we be?

        No Medal of Freedom but definitely a few awards....

        Wilson's awards include the Department of Defense Distinguished Service Award, the Department of State Superior and Meritorious Honor Awards, the University of California, Santa Barbara Distinguished Alumnus Award, and the American Foreign Service Association William R. Rivkin Award. Additionally, he was decorated as a Commander in the Order of the Equatorial Star by the Government of Gabon and as an Admiral in the El Paso Navy by the El Paso County Commissioners. He is the 2003 recipient of the Ron Ridenhour Award for Truth-Telling, awarded to an individual or organization that has brought an important issue to light.

        TWAC-free for me, please.

          WTF? Why would this innocuous post be troll-rated? Fill me in folks.

          And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this--this (chuckle) is working very well for them. (Barbara Bush)

            imabluemerkin has recommended several of my comments in this diary so it was probably just another slip of the new rating system.   Seems to happen sometimes to me if I scroll too fast before the rating is set.

            TWAC-free for me, please.
