Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks to de Gondi for making this available to English
speaking readers.   To my mind the interesting (if believable) point is the news that the Niger hoax was already being "circulated" to a receptive and high-level audience in the summer of 2001, i.e., just before 9/11.
This might partially explain Rumsfeld's 9/11 order to "roll it all up" into an excuse to attack Saddam  To me this is further circumstantial evidence that the goal of the 9/11 attacks was to produce the U.S. invasion of Iraq. We already know the names of a number of the active participants in this disinformation campaign, although
we know neither the extent to which they "really believed" nor who was directing the orchestra.  

Needless to say, any information being doled out by an
acknowledged spymaster must be accepted only with a high degree of skepticism.   Nevertheless, the Dgse has not been ro recently, publicly, and conspicuously wrong as the U.S. "intelligence" services.
