"Irreverence is the champion of liberty and its only sure defense."

"Anyone who combines politics and baseball is an idiot, because everyone knows that ping-pong is the greatest sport. Oh, and I'm really a Communist who hates NASCAR and listens to Joan Baez in the dark.

Uranium Claim Came From Nigerian Diplomat, ABC Says
ABC News reported yesterday that a low level Nigerian diplomat based in Italy was the source of the forged document supposedly showing that Iraq had tried to buy uranium in Niger. He is said to have fabricated it with the intent of selling it to supplement his meager pay. ABC's "intelligence" sources say he sold it to the Italian secret service for a few thousand dollars.

[T]he intelligence debacle grew out of a scam when an underpaid African diplomat who was stationed in Rome created bogus documents, which he then sold to the Italian secret service, sources said.

The Italians officially deny the sale, but intelligence sources told ABCNEWS the fake documents were produced in late 2001 in Rome, in a building that houses the tiny embassy of Niger.

The diplomat, who now has been recalled to Niger, sold the forged documents to the military branch of the Italian secret service for what sources say was a few thousand dollars.
