My guess is that Richard Perle was the one who first noticed the mistake. If not him, Bernard Lewis.
"Bush allegedly ordered the CIA to forge a handwritten letter from the head of Iraq's intelligence service to Saddam Hussein that purported to link the Iraqi dictator to the ringleader of the hijackers who toppled the Twin Towers on 9/11, according to news accounts of Suskind's new book, The Way of the World: A Story of Truth and Hope in an Age of Extremism. Such use of an intelligence service to influence domestic political debate could be an impeachable offense, Suskind writes."
The Bush team probably forged the letter in English before experts and clones of Israeli Orientalists realized that they speak Arabic in that part of the world.
