You might not hear about the following story from US news sources.
It turns out that much of the UK government dossier on Iraq  -- that
was praised by Colin Powell in his address before the U.N. -- was
plagiarized from a thesis written by a graduate student in California.   
And most of the "news" in that thesis was based on information that
is 12 years old.

Solidarity, Jerry
