Nixonian in Their Aspect

Yes, developments a-plenty in the Plamegate investigation.

Which is important, yes, but note also the following, buried in the story (looks to me like it was originally placed at about graf #5, and then moved down by the ed. w/a slight rewrite):

'A parallel FBI investigation into the apparent forgery of documents suggesting that Iraq attempted to buy yellowcake uranium from Niger is "at a critical stage," according to a senior law enforcement official who declined to elaborate. That probe, conducted by FBI counterintelligence agents, was launched last spring after U.N. officials pronounced the documents crude forgeries.'

Mark my words, this Niger forgery will come at some point to touch on a Halliburton subsidiary.
