I noticed an interesting paragraph in this morning's London Guardian report on developments in the Rove/Plame leak investigation:

Meanwhile, a parallel investigation is under way into who forged the Niger documents. They are known to have been passed to an Italian journalist by a former Italian defence intelligence officer, Rocco Martino, in October 2002, but their origins have remained a mystery. Mr Martino has insisted to the Italian press that he was "a tool used by someone for games much bigger than me", but has not specified who that might be.
A source familiar with the inquiry said investigators were examining whether former US intelligence agents may have been involved...

To my knowledge, no American publication has mentioned the Niger Embassy forgeries within the context of the Plame leak much less a US involvment in the creation of the forged documents.
