    something that was bugging me, and I wasn't even aware that it was--the bit about knowing about the Niger yellowcake "from British intelligence."  You're absolutely right--this statement is fishy just from his having made it.  The US gets info from around the world all the time, US govt folks vet it, and if it's important enough, a president talking about it in a speech to the nation would just talk about it as "our intelligence officials have learned...".  Later on, if someone wants clarification, details as to where specific info originated sometimes gets publicly released--but this was a distancing manouevre, I just hadn't seen it in the speech before.  Thanks!
