Proof that State Department Knew of "Yellow Cake" Uranium Forgery

Months before President Bush's 2003 State of the Union address cited intelligence about Iraq's acquisition of "yellow cake" uranium to justify going to war with Iraq, there were credible and convincing reports on the internet about how this "yellow cake" uranium intelligence was a forgery. I read some of them long before the 2003 State of the Union address.

Today's New York Times has an article about a 2002 State Department intelligence assessment that concluded that the intelligence about "yellow cake" uranium was "unlikely" to be reliable.

Denials that intelligence was "fixed" to go to war with Iraq are losing credibility with all but the most loyal supporters of the Bush administration.
