Wilson - CIA - WMD: Why not focus on the facts?

Why does the RNC and the administration continue to make this FALSE claim in an attempt to discredit Wilson... Who, by the way, filed an oral report with the CIA (which they formalized into a written report) that was CORRECT!

FactCheck.org: Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman said the agent's husband Joe Wilson falsely claimed Vice President Cheney authorized his trip to Africa - a claim Wilson never actually made.
February 12, 2002 - Responding to inquiries from Cheney's office, the State Department, and the Defense Department, the CIA's Directorate of Operations' Counterproliferation Division (CPD) look for more information. They consider having Wilson return to Niger to investigate. In the process, Valerie Wilson writes a memo to a superior saying, "My husband has good relations with both the PM [prime minister] and the former Minister of Mines (not to mention lots of French contacts), both of whom could possibly shed light on this sort of activity."

Why is the fact that he was RIGHT secondary to the point he ended up working for Kerry, or that he was recommended by his wife? Could it be that he wanted to work for Kerry because he felt this administration was lying to the public on a very very important issue? Why isn't he considered a patriot? ... hum...

Interesting the LIBERAL press-corps members from the NYTimes were willing to go to jail to protect their conservative republican sources (Libby and Rove) ... while Novak (the conservative), who actually WROTE the article and outed Wilson's wife cut a deal and is free...

BTW, why is a criminal like Libby the VPs Chief-of-staff?
