  •  This gets back to my longstanding curiosity... (none)
    I diaried about it this morning... who created the forged documents?  And why, and when?  Italy may have been the source of them, but probably didn't create them.

    And why were they such crappy forgeries?

    There is an unsubtle difference between breathing fire and blowing smoke.

      Niger Forgery and Michael Ledeen

      Canadians care too...

    •  CIA veterans Ray McGovern and Vince Cannistraro (4.00)
      Implicate Michael Ledeen, or people close to him as people who concocted the bogus Niger documents.
      From a comment yesterday.
      •  I wonder if Ledeen's phone number turns up on... (none)
        Libby's or Hannah's phone records at any time between the Nick Kristoof piece and the Bovak piece.
        •  Interesting question, and if Ledeen was behind (none)
          the crude, amatuerish Niger forgeries, he might also be sloppy enough to talk with HW people on a phone # that could be traced back to him.

          Even if he did though, knowing Bush, and the way his incriminating TANG records, and his incriminating drug/alcohol  records were so easily 'disappeared', I don't imagine it would be much a feat for this slimy Bush bunch to scrub or claim executive priviledge on WH phone call logs.
