NY Times vs. The Vatican

The Vatican knows how to play hardball: the Vatican recently responded to a scandal in Italy by (according to Vatican-watcher John Allen) conspiring “to smear an Italian Catholic journalist by leaking fake documents suggesting he was involved in a gay affair.” They could take a page out of the Scientologists' book and hire some out-of-work journalists to dig up dirt on Bill Keller... is Jayson Blair available?
