Wilson Speaks Out On Leak Of Wife's Identity

NPR's Robert Siegel talks with retired diplomat Joseph Wilson about the leaking of his wife's name and identity as a CIA operative to journalists. Earlier this year, Wilson had written in The New York Times that there was no evidence to back up the Bush administration's claims that Iraq was trying to buy uranium from Niger. Wilson believes someone in the administration disclosed his wife's identity to journalists in order to deter others from coming forward with information potentially harmful to the administration.
