Chalabi Watch

CHALABI WATCH….Ahmed Chalabi has now filed a lawsuit in which he accuses the CIA of spreading the “knowingly false story” that Chalabi blew an American espionage program by spilling the beans to the Iranian government that the United States was monitoring their secret communications. (Details here.)

This just gets better and better, doesn’t it? On the other hand, maybe Chalabi has a point. After all, the Bush administration itself doesn’t seem to think that blowing undercover operations is all that big a deal, so why should they expect any better behavior from Chalabi?
