50. They KNEW the Niger documents were forgeries too - and suppressed this
fact. They deliberately witheld access to them despite continuous pleas for MONTHS - it took only a few hours for the experts to be able to gather conclusive proof of their fakery once they did see them. You didn't have to be a Niger expert to spot it - as the excerpted translation in the OP shows, the French used was laughably bad. (I tend think that if the Italian government had done it, or if a Nigerian had done it, better French could have been used.) The administration had been told by their own security experts not to believe these documents.

It's both things - the forgery itself and how/by whom the fact of their OBVIOUS fraudulence was suppressed. Condi is supposed to be this great linguist - if she had read them she would have known.
