Bob Novak, who is apparently still preoccupied with his role in the Plame scandal, went after Joe Wilson again.

Columnist Robert Novak said Saturday Ambassador Joe Wilson did not forcefully object to the naming of his CIA operative wife, Valerie Plame Wilson, when Novak spoke to him prior to the publication of a column that sparked a federal investigation and sent White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby to jail. “He was not terribly exercised about it,” Novak said.

Greg Sargent talked to Wilson today, and the former ambassador not only said Novak is lying, but added that Novak is "going straight to Hell."

Wilson added that Novak is "a chronic liar." Read the whole thing.
