Another Guy Who Gets It

This from Matthew Yglesias, titled "Follow the Documents."

Matt asks one of my top four questions about the run up to the Invasion of Iraq: who forged the yellow cake documents?

From a footnote in the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report:

"In March 2003, the Vice Chairman of the Committee, Senator [Jay] Rockefeller, requested that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigate the source of the documents, [clause redacted], the motivation of those responsible for the forgeries, and the extent to which the forgeries were part of a disinformation campaign. Because of the FBI's investigation into this matter, the Committee did not examine these issues."

As of July 2005, the FBI has apparently come up with nothing.

I wonder why not. Maybe they've all been busy trying to get their computer system fixed.
