Prepare the raspberry pie for Able Danger

Johnny Wendell brought to my attention the following Wikipedia article: Manucher Ghorbanifar has emerged as the probable origin of the information cited by Congressman Curt Weldon's book, Countdown to Terror: The Top-Secret Information that Could Prevent the Next Terrorist Attack on America... and How the CIA has Ignored it (Regnery Publishing, June 2005) ISBN: 0895260050. Weldon cites an anonymous source, "Ali," believed to be Fereidoun Mahdavi, a former Iranian minister of commerce before the Iranian Revolution who is a close associate of Ghorbanifar. I guessed this from the beginning (and have the e-mail to prove it). Calling Ghorbanifar a con man is to improperly exalt that profession. He is an artiste of disinformation, virtually unparalleled at making things up. The Hindrocket of the 1980s. If the New York Times is using him as a source, even indirectly, they deserve the raspberry pie should his information prove to be as reliable as in the past.
Oh, geez. This guy makes Chalabi look positively honest and upright.
Chalabi is nowhere near as good at reality invetion as Ghorbanifar. We saw through Chalabi's war lies even if the DC Democrats did not.

Bob Parry spent years on the October surprise and Iran-Contra before figuring out Ghorbanifar was totally unreliable.

Ghorbanifar is a close associate of Michael Ledeen

"Since the late 1980s, Ghorbanifar has been the subject of two CIA 'burn notices.'"

As the article above shows, Ghorbanifar may have been the source of the forged Niger documents.

So it would make perfect sense if he's Weldon's source.

My guess is he's an agent of Bushes.
