Update: David Neiwert of Orcinus points out no one has actually determined the CBS documents to be fakes. Check this out, and see if you can tell which was typed on a 1972 IBM selectric and which in MS Word?

Update: Josh Marshall discusses the Niger faked document investigation in the context of the Valerie Plame investigation today.
