According to the New York Post, Joe Wilson, the amateur "CIA operative" and vocal Bush basher who's Saddam-never-sought-yellow-cake-uranium-in-Niger story was completely discredited by the 9-11 commission report and the British government's Butler report, is still a Kerry advisor.

July 29, 2004 -- DEMOCRAT John Kerry's campaign yesterday gave a ringing endorsement to Bush-bashing Ambassador Joe Wilson — even though a bipartisan Senate committee just found so many holes in his story that even his own wife won't back it up.
Wilson claimed President Bush lied about whether Saddam Hussein was seeking yellowcake uranium from Niger, and Wilson knew it because the CIA sent him there. The Senate report says, if anything, the truth is the opposite of what Wilson claimed.
But that doesn't seems to bother the Kerryites, who yesterday hailed Wilson's "integrity" and said he's still very much a part of the team that Kerry hopes will make him commander in chief. "Joe Wilson has served for many months as an informal adviser to the Kerry campaign and continues to do so," said Kerry foreign policy adviser Susan Rice.

"Sandy Berger is my friend, and he has tirelessly served this nation with honor and distinction," Kerry said Tuesday. "I respect his decision to step aside as an adviser to the campaign until this matter is resolved objectively and fairly."
Associates said they expected that he would probably try to rejoin the campaign after the FBI concludes an investigation that began in earnest in January, after the National Archives discovered that classified material Berger had reviewed was missing.What can we learn from the fact that John Kerry has, as his most important national security advisors, these two bumblers (both of whom have been discredited by major bi-partisan reports in more than one country, and one who is under active investigation by the FBI for alleged theft of the most highly classified type of documents)? Just this: Kerry is not serious about national security.
