This is an excellent summary.
I thought everyone knew this and the fact that Wilson lied about what so many people knew only points to the fact that Wilson isn't half as smart as he thinks he is.
mark for later
Where and when?
Joseph A. Wilson consistently told reporters heÂd seen the forged documents from Niger and noted that the names and dates on them were wrong and therefore he knew they were inauthentic. He testified in the same vein to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI). When the Committee noted that we had not received those documents until eight months after his Mission, Wilson changed his testimony. As the members who filed an Additional Views Report observed, that statement made under oath was also at odds with the facts. From the Additional Views report of the SSCI:
It would thus appear that he did have access to the names and dates in the CIA reports, which means either (a) he had unauthorized access to classified CIA documents, received 8 months after his Mission or (b) he saw them before the CIA did.

"as another battle in the ongoing internal war between US intelligence agencies and the Bush administration."
My question is; Why after 5 years is there still an on going war?
Great post. I'm going to send it to Mark Levin.
"Backing for British intell report on Congo" came from D.I.A.? The same agency thats trying to bury Able/Danger?
here it is again:
"It is clear that a greater geo-political game has been afoot for some time. The fact that France had paid to have the Niger documents forged to embarrass the Bush administration is only part of the deception. The other aspect of this operation is that the CIA and ISG deliberately ignored or downplayed information provided by British intelligence and documents found in Iraq indicating that an Iraq-Africa uranium connection was a logical and reasonable conclusion, and that connection most likely involved the Congo."
