Joe Wilson, husband of outed CIA agent Valerie Plame, kept his criticism of ex-Vice President Dick Cheney and Cheney's former chief of staff Scooter Libby succinct and serious Wednesday, when he referred to each of them simply as "traitor."
During a discussion on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer," Wilson sat beside his wife and harshly described each of the men who were at the center of a scandal that led to the leak of Plame's identity.
"They betrayed the national security of our country," Wilson, an outspoken critic of the Iraq War and former U.S. Ambassador said. "By betraying the identity of a covert CIA operative, whose identity is kept secret because it's in the national interests that the identity be kept secret, in order for her to be able to acquire foreign secrets on behalf of our country."
