Well, the reporter, a Mr. Smith, admits that he destroyed the photos of the original documents, and returned those original docs to their provider. So he has what to prove that his docs are real?
And when he did his re-typing he did it on an old typewriter. Why? To make it look like they were real?
Sounds all too reminiscent of the Rathergate forgeries.
There wasn't much there to begin with, now its even less. A puff of smoke dissipating in a strong breeze.
