Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Another possibility is the IAEA. If the IAEA was the source and they got their docs from the US, it would seem to confirm eR's theory that the CIA had a "non-Burba" source for the Niger docs.

I agree with eRiposte. The IAEA received a document signed by Wassam al-Zahawie, dated July 6, 2000. Burba did not have it. It is not known which version of the forgeries the IAEA received: the Repubblica version, Panorama version or yet another. Nor exactly how many pages.

Since there are differences in the two known sets, a US Representative could possibly ask the question.

There is still the problem of exactly when US IS's started receiving some Niger reports based on an original attempt at forgery. Possibly before 9/11 as eRiposte points out.
