John Kerry, Communist historian

This is funny.

Not only does John Kerry's website no longer connect to Joe Wilson's website any longer, it doesn't even mention Wilson. On Patriot Paradox, the bloggers are discussing how running a search on Kerry's website for "Joe Wilson" returns no results.

The Monk tried this and confirmed the Patriot Paradox results. Then The Monk searched for "Joseph Wilson" and "Joseph C. Wilson" and both of those searches turned up no results (a search for just Joseph Wilson, without quotes keeping the names together, also does not return any hits that have former ambassador Joseph Wilson). In addition, the national security plan authored by Sandy Berger is no longer on the Kerry site, according to Instapundit and the Patriot Paradox.

Ion Mihai Pacepa knows all about this tactic. In 1978, Pacepa defected from Romania to the US. He was the Romanian spy chief and Ceausescu's right hand. In his memoir, Red Horizons: Chronicles of a Communist Spy Chief (the hardback title), Pacepa has a picture of the Ceausescus, some Romanian-Americans and himself in the Ceausescus' hotel room on their trip to New York. After Pacepa defected, the same picture was published in a Romanian book . . . but Pacepa was not in it.

Joe Wilson just got the Pacepa Treatment . . .
