I don't think that's impossible, but I think that the NYT values their perceived integrity too much to risk this. I think it's more likely that it is a screw job, perhaps at the secret behest of the administration, to discredit the LSM when it is revealed to be a "fake", but even that is less likely than someone actually in the CFSG's administration.

In my opinion, if the letter is revealed to not be all it seems, it's most likely the result of the NYT stretching the definition of high ranking official.
