Yet another spy scandal
He was a key link between the Defense Department and Iraqi National Congress Leader Ahmed Chalabi.
He worked for neocon Douglas Feith.
He was one of two U.S. officials that held meetings with Iranian dissidents, including arms dealer Manucher Ghorbanifar, a key figure in the Iran-Contra scandal. These Pentagon-approved meetings were brokered by neoconservative Michael Ledeen of the American Enterprise Institute and said to have taken place in Paris in 2002.
They conned the leaders of both Israel and the US into thinking that having the US (Iran's biggest enemy) invade Iraq (Iran's oldest enemy) would be good for the US and Israel. Instead, the Shiite-mullah-run government will be far more hostile to Israel (and far more friendly to Iran) than the secular Saddam ever was, AND -- as General Myers admitted earlier this week -- the US is so bogged down in Iraq that it can't do diddly anywhere else.
