17. Interesting...
I agree, it's hard to reconcile these two accounts with each other. If we are to believe that Abu Zubaydah had been one of the mujihadeen network, we can assume that he would have had contacts with either Saudi Intelligence or the ISI, for it is through these groups that the CIA managed the mujihadeen fighters.

On the other hand, it's possible for Zubaydah to have been a psychotic AND still have those connections to high-level officials, if only because intelligence agencies find such people useful. And on what basis was this determination of 'insanity' made? Was it after he'd been drugged and tortured? Perhaps its easier to dismiss what he revealed by labelling as such?

Your point is well taken -- it's hard to know what's real and what is disinformation here. I don't know what to believe either, but I do believe that this is an issue that Bush is afraid of.
