You can't edit the forwarded message. The only way around it is to copy the information the original email and paste it into a new message.

It is a matter of opinion. To some the point of forwarding a message would be to get that message to another person, why forward the message if you want to delete it's content.

You could probably hit reply, and then change the recipients name to who you want to forward it to. I know you can delete the content of a reply message, just not a forwarded message.

true but sometimes you want to not show the header (email address, date, time etc)
you still can't edit even when you reply.

Yep, it looks like you have to delete everything, not just the header. Follow MM's steps.
