Politics - Plamegate

This article seems to insinuate a wider conspiracy.

Meanwhile, there was evidence that the inquiry was looking to the wider manipulation of intelligence before the Iraq invasion. According to one former intelligence official, the inquiry has had contacts with a parallel Italian inquiry into the forging of documents purporting to show Iraq was trying to buy uranium in Niger.

In Rome, the head of military intelligence (Sismi), Nicolo Pollari, has been summoned to parliament on November 3 to answer questions about its role in the forgery after La Repubblica newspaper suggested Sismi may have circulated bogus documents to help Washington justify the invasion.
