“On June 8 [2003], National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice appeared on Meet the Press and was asked by Tim Russert if [President] Bush should retract his State of the Union sentence about Iraqi uranium shopping in Africa. She replied, ‘The president quoted a British paper. We did not know at that time–no one knew at that time, in our circles–maybe someone knew down in the bowels of the agency, but no one in our circles knew that there were doubts and suspicions that this might be a forgery.’ ”
