European Intelligence Suggests Iraq Sought Uranium in Niger
The British government has said repeatedly it stands by intelligence it gathered and used in its controversial September 2002 dossier on Iraq's

handed to the U.S. embassy in Rome that appeared to be correspondence between Niger and Iraqi officials.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
