"His address suddenly gave the uranium issue high visibility, but it could not withstand global scrutiny"
This article is actually pretty good for the NYSlimes, but isn't the above statement false? Aren't the British and others STILL maintaining they were right about this issue, and therefore Bush ALSO was right in his speech?
"Aren't the British and others STILL maintaining they were right about this issue, and therefore Bush ALSO was right in his speech?"
Yes they are.
And the evidence they have isn't the forged papers.
On top of that significant amounts of "yellow cake" have been found in Iraq from the reports I remember reading.
Both Clifford May (search NRO) and Christopher Hitchens (search Slate) have published pieces today that totally debunk this NYT version of "reality." Plame helped select her husband for the Niger "fact finding" mission and both she and he are partisan Democrats. Wilson told a host of lies that the Senate report "outs" him on. Hitch even goes so far as to point out that the CIA has become a Democrat outpost for undermining Republican presidents. Both these articles are well worth seeking out but I'm too sleepy (and woozy from a bit of wine) to post both links. May's column is excellent.
