JohnHannah was born in Canton, Georgia, son of an NFL player, Herb Hannah, an offensive lineman for the University of Alabama who played a year at tackle for the New York Giants in 1951.
JohnHannah was raised in Albertville, Alabama and excelled at football, wrestling and track at Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Hannah played tackle and guard for the University of Alabama under Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant from 1970 until 1972, and earned All-American honors twice, in 1971 and then was a unanimous Consensus All-American his senior year in 1972.
Hannah had probably been the one who fed Cheney the Niger uranium story, triggering a Cheney request to the CIA to verify it and thence Joe Wilson's trip to Niamey in spring of 2002, where he found the story to be an absurd falsehood on the face of it.
Hannah and the Iraqi National Congress are being accused of peddling patently false "intelligence." This is a criminal enterprise, and there was always the danger that others in Plame's department at the agency, which specializes in preventing weapons proliferation, might be tempted to find ways of revealing the extent of Hannah's bad faith.
Hannah may have wanted to send a clear signal that whistleblowers would have their careers ruined, as Valerie Plame's was, as a way of ensuring that the details of his operation did not become public.
