They are copies. And originals are not available.
From Captains Quarter - a much updated story on the “Downing Street Memos”. Assited by LGF and others.

Did Lucy Ramirez Find The Downing Street Memos?
The media and the Leftists have had a field day with the Downing Street memos that they claim imply that the Bush administration lied about the intelligence on WMD in order to justify the attack on Iraq. Despite the fact that none of the memos actually say that, none of them quote any officials or any documents, and that the text of the memos show that the British government worried about the deployment of WMD by Saddam against Coalition troops, Kuwait and/or Israel, the meme continues to survive.
Until tonight, however, no one questioned the authenticity of the documents provided by the Times of London. That has now changed, as Times reporter Michael Smith admitted that the memos he used are not originals, but retyped copies.b A VERY HOT BREAKING STORY UNFOLDING[/b]

Interesting legs on the fake, but maybe accurate memos.
Creating a document to fit a theory?
