In two recent posts, Joshua Micha Marshall hints that he's found a marvelous proof of serious problems in the newly resurrected Niger uranium story, but (alas), it will not fit in the margins of his blog. He's promising revelations soon—probably worth keeping an eye on.

  1. There's much speculation that this is the context for said tease:


  2. lol- gratuitous Fermat reference. I love it.

  3. WarrenM,

    Damn you! You beat me to the post. 🙂

  4. I have a speculation as well, and that's that the genesis of the newly resurrected Niger uranium story might be due to concern for Tony Blair's political well-being.

    Remember when the first Niger uranium story fell apart, all that Blair could offer was "other intelligence sources" but he never put up anything. Now he is paying a political price for his apparent duplicity.

  5. What was that other big revelation JMM promised on his blog, but when the Nation or similar printed it it was just rumor-mongering or similar? It was about a year back I think.

  6. coolgeek: Which Ledeen? The Italian intelligence operative? The Iranian intelligence operative? The Israeli intelligence operative? The American intelligence operative?

    Here's the speculation. It's the same post popping up all over the place.

  7. If you're referring to the Plame outing, which got a lot of play in the Nation, you may be in luck. There's further speculation that the same person(s) that burned Plame actually forged the documents given to us from Italian intelligence, and it's been reported that the FBI is vigorously investigating the forgery.

    The name Ledeen is popping up in a lot of places, including Rome and the Office of the Vice President.

    Again, speculation, but one can hope.

  8. Lawyer rule #1, wacko; if you don't know the answer, don't ask the question.
