Maybe Al Gore was right the other day. I’ve been slow to catch on to this story, but it appears that, through Ahmad Chalabi, the Persians have once again taken Babylon:
The CIA has asked the FBI to investigate Ahmad Chalabi’s Pentagon contacts to see how he got sensitive military data that ended up in Tehran.
At the heart of the CIA request is its growing suspicion that Iran manipulated the United States and Britain into the Iraq war by bogus intelligence passed through Ahmad Chalabi’s Iraqi National Congress to Pentagon contacts, the Guardian reported Tuesday.
If this is true, and many people appear to believe it, we’re witnessing one of the most humiliating episodes in recent American history.
