>"The evidence that we had that the Iraqi Government had >gone back to try to purchase further amounts of uranium >from Niger did not come from these so-called 'forged' >documents, they came from separate intelligence," >Mr Blair said. Let's give Blair (and Bush) the benefit of the doubt for a moment. Nevertheless, there WERE forged documents, and they didn't drop down as a gentle rain from heaven: someone forged them, and someone passed them to people in the governments. Who?!?? If intelligence knew so long ago that these documents were bogus, would it not seem reasonable that they would want to know who, and why, and look at other "intelligence" on that issue with a strong lens? To say that the evidence came from another intelligence source is not an excuse, but a proper locus of inquiry and disclosure -- just as is the question of "who?" -- and what else came from the same bogus source. ________________________________________________________________ The best thing to hit the internet in years - Juno SpeedBand!
