..."In the last ten days, however, it has become inconvertably clear that a key piece of evidence you and other Administrative officials have cited regarding Iraq's efforts to obtain nuclear weapons is a hoax. What's more, the Central Intelligence Agency questioned the veracity of the evidence at the same time you and other Administration officials were citing it in publec statements. This a breach of the highest order and the American people are entitled to know how it happened." dated March 17, 2003
