Conservative columnist Robert Novak said he did not hear forceful objection from the husband of a then-undercover CIA agent before her name was printed in his infamous column that sparked a years-long legal battle over his sources.
"He was not terribly exercised about it," Novak said, referring to Ambassador Joseph Wilson, whose wife Valerie Plame Wilson was outed in his July 2003 column. Novak's comments to the Society of Professional Journalists convention were reported Monday in The Hill.
Wilson refuted that charge in an interview with RAW STORY Monday.
"I hope he's going to confession, because if not he's surely going to Hell for his lies," Wilson said.
