  •  Passage in SSCI refers to the initial report (none)
    of the Niger sales,the one that piqued Cheney's interest, not the (forged) documents that turned up a year later.  The CIA may have considered SISMI or the particular agent a credible source.  But Novak refers to the "documents" having come from a con man, which they did.  The CIA in July, 2003 may well have known that.

    This may also just be Novak, in July, 2003, after esposure of the forgeries, showing that he is really in the know.

    •  Good speculations on both counts (none)
      Just one more detail to keep in mind, though. The SSCI never indicates that CIA had decided these came from a "Con Man," at least not in the unredacted bits.

      Which makes me keep wondering about the report mentioned in that WaPo article but not in SSCI.
