15. Don't let the documents divert the issue
The fact is Wilson reported that there was no basis to the Niger uranium story. The Bush Administration intentionally referred to British Intelligence because the CIA wouldn't back up the uranium claim. They knew the information was suspect and deliberately ignored it in order to hype the war. They were wrong and the fact that documents were forged only backs up the CIA's suspicion in the first place.

I think the Administration gets away with everything because there is SO MUCH WRONG, so much to sort out, not because there's nothing there in the first place.
