Check out this interesting piece by Aram Roston and Kianne Sadeq.
The NBC news correspondents report that the U.S. has finally cut off Iraqi politician Ahmad Chalabi for his “unauthorized” contacts with Iran.
It’s worth nothing that Chalabi and his Iraqi National Congress provided an essential vehicle exploited by Douglas Feith, James Woolsey and others to agitate for the invasion of Iraq. In fact, the offices of Chalabi’s Iraqi National Congress used to cohabit the same space of Douglas Feith’s law firm.
Roston is author of one of the best treatments of Chalabi out right now, The Man Who Pushed America to War: The Extraordinary Life, Adventures, and Obsessions of Ahmed Chalabi.
