CBS is reporting tonight that Ahmed Chalabi is accused of passing highly-classified US intelligence to Iran. Newsweek has already reported as much.
If the information Chalabi gave Tehran is on a par with the "intelligence" he fed to the Pentagon, the US has nothing to worry about.
John Dizard's recent article provides essential background on this story, tracing the links between Chalabi and the Washington neoconservatives.
Dizard believes Chalabi spotted the ignorance of the neo-cons in Middle Eastern affairs -- and sold them a pup:
"Chalabi appears to have recognized that the neocons, while ruthless, realistic and effective in bureaucratic politics, were remarkably ignorant about the situation in Iraq, and willing to buy a fantasy of how the country's politics worked. So he sold it to them."
