So Where DID Those Forged Niger-Uranium Documents Come From?

This scandal continues to percolate. You'd think such a juicy story involving forged documents, spys, coverups, intrigues leading to war, and so on would generate a bit more interest from the major U.S. news organizations.

Thankfully, Josh Marshall continues to follow breaking developments, raking the muck and connecting dots. He offers a skeptical take on today's London Times article, "'Forgers' of key Iraq war contract named":
Now, remember, this version of events [described in the Times article] is the work of an Italian government 'investigation'. And all evidence suggests that the Italian government has very dirty hands in this whole affair, acting at least as the purveyor of the forgeries and possibly their creator as well.

Here's a few links to some of Josh's previous work on this subject, in case you missed it:
-- the FBI "reopening" its inquiry;
-- Hadley's role;
-- the "cleaning up" of the forgeries;
-- and the most detail is in "the Italian Connection," Part One, Part Two, and Part Three.

eriposte at The Left Coaster has (quite a bit) more.
