    of getting into other countries affairs as our own Kossack Pen detailed in a terrific series on the "Usual Suspects" done back in 05-06. The pertinent diary on Berlusconi was :

    Niger Yellowcake and The Man Who Forged Too Much+

    Berlusconi may well have been involved in helping to get the forged Niger Yellow cake docs (the ones that Joe Wilson later identified as being fraudulent and by doing so got his wife, Valerie Plame, outed) into the hands of the CIA.

    Rocco Martino, Michael Ledeen, Francesco Pazienza, Silvio Berlusconi and Nicolo Pollari are all members of P-2. P-2 is found out to have been running a parallel intelligence network that recruited SISMI agents. Pollari authorized the abduction of Abu Omar. The abduction was allegedly coordinated by Robert Lady. An unknown SISMI agent contacts Martino and puts him in touch with a "lady" who can get him documents about Niger. The Niger Embassy is broken into. The unknown SISMI agent gives the "lady" real Niger documents along with the forgeries. This "lady" gives them to Martino.

    And now the road takes us to the office of Panorama.

    Panorama is owned by Silvio Berlusconi.

    The beatings will continue until morale improves. ********************************* -8.50, -6.92
