FITZGERALD AND NIGER….A couple of weeks ago, UPI’s Martin Walker reported that Patrick Fitzgerald had asked for, and obtained, the full version of an Italian parliamentary inquiry into the forgery of the pre-war documents that claimed Saddam Hussein had tried to purchase uranium yellowcake from Niger. Today, Laura Rozen says Walker was wrong. Not only did Fitzgerald never ask for the report, but the report doesn’t even exist in the first place.
So just who were Walker’s “NATO sources”? I wonder if he’ll revisit this story?
