Another item in a long list of fake evidence and proof synthesized from newspaper articles, used to justify war. From Washington Post:
A key piece of evidence linking Iraq to a nuclear weapons program appears to have been fabricated, the United Nations' chief nuclear inspector said yesterday in a report that called into question U.S. and British claims about Iraq's secret nuclear ambitions.

Documents that purportedly showed Iraqi officials shopping for uranium in Africa two years ago were deemed "not authentic" after careful scrutiny by U.N. and independent experts, Mohamed ElBaradei, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), told the U.N. Security Council.
And we're also talking about those aluminum tubes, which Colin Powell says are for use in enriching uranium for nuclear weapons. Doesn't match with the facts, as they aren't suited for that purpose, and it is well documented how Iraq is using them to make ordinary rockets.

I saw this a few days ago, and it's slowly getting around the internet. But as far as I can tell, the US media is pretty much ignoring it. Maybe because it's from such an unimpeachable source that it would be too embarassing for the administration.
