The Chalabi Spy Scandal

Chalabi was the source of lies about WMDs, the source of lies to the New York Times stoking war fever, took the US government for tens of millions of dollars with nothing to show for it, and now it appears he was a spy for Iran!!!

But Bush was never close to him:

Bush maintains he was never close to Chalabi.

"My meetings with him were very brief," Bush said. "I mean, I think I met with him at the State of the Union and just kind of working through the rope line, and he might have come up with a group of leaders. But I haven't had any extensive conversations with him."

Bush said he doesn't recall any of his advisers saying that Chalabi was providing vital information.


Caption: Before his fall from favor, Ahmed Chalabi, seen standing behind Laura Bush, was a "special guest" at January's State of the Union address.

Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar.

And if he didn't think Chalabi was giving us vital information, why the hell was Bush authorizing tens of millions of dollars to him?

Idiot. Idiot. Idiot. Idiot. Idiot.

Take your choice.
