Those dossiers again

The FT Magazine slips from its usual high standards by warming up a story from last summer - The ditch Blair project, by Isabel Hilton, 4 March 2005. One glaring error:
the Cambridge academic Glen Rangwalla, who had exposed the fact that the government's dossier on Iraq's WMD contained plagiarised text from an obsolete academic thesis.
What Rangwalla exposed was the dossier of February 2003, not the far more famous, and important, dossier of September 2002 on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.
