Now IF this evidence was faked (emphasis on 'IF') then I think it brings a legitimate concern about our other evidence.

Good article ... unfortunately it's vague about how the British came across these documents...


Knowledgeable sources familiar with the forgery investigation described the faked evidence as a series of letters between Iraqi agents and officials in the central African nation of Niger. The documents had been given to the U.N. inspectors by Britain and reviewed extensively by U.S. intelligence.
but who gave them to Britain?


It's apparent that even the inspectors don't believe it was faked by the US or Britain...


A spokesman for the IAEA said the agency did not blame either Britain or the United States for the forgery. The documents “were shared with us in good faith,” he said.

This is the only thing that toubles me is this statement:


Also, ElBaradei reported finding no evidence of banned weapons or nuclear material in an extensive sweep of Iraq using advanced radiation detectors.

I find it very hard to believe that they have completed an "extensive sweep" of that entire country so quickly...
kinda shakes my confidence in how thorough these inspections really are....

If they were fake i think there is still enough evidence to go to war
