Is David Wurmser Keyzer Soze?
Poor David Wurmser.
Why doesn't he get the attention that other Bush Administration neocons like Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz do?
Heck, what's a neglected neocon to do? He even wrote a book in 1999 about America's "failure" to defeat Saddam Hussein and called it "Tyranny's Ally: America's Failure to Defeat Saddam Hussein" which will cost you less than five bucks at Amazon.com.
Who did David Wurmser want to replace Saddam's government with?
You probably guessed it. Ahmad Chalabi's Iraqi National Congress.
Speaking of Chalabi, a few bloggers are speculating that poor, neglected David Wurmser might be a source for a certain imprisoned "journalist" from The New York Times and who may be a person of interest in the Patrick Fitzgerald led investigation of the Valerie Plame leak.
Richard Perle, Wurmser's wife, Meyrav, and Judith Miller - along with Miller's former co-author, the right wing conspiracist Laurie Mylroie - all share an agent, Eleana Benador, who arranges their "TV appearances and speaking engagements." Many of Benador's clients are affilliated with the American Enterprise Institute, where Wurmser was once the director of Middle East studies. Wurmser once worked as a senior adviser to John Bolton, during his tenure as the Under-Secretary for Arms Control and International Security, and now works under Dick Cheney with the long title of Principal Deputy Assistant to the Vice President for National Security Affairs.
Check out Source Watch for more fun facts about neocon David Wurmser, and maybe it's about time we begin giving him the attention he deserves. Because if Wurmser gets frogmarched, too, it will be nice to know a little about him.
