4. Ties in nicely with Bushco's spiking of legitimate non-proliferation efforts
Khan Job: Bush Spiked Probe of Pakistans Dr. Strangelove, BBC reported in 2001

in order to push for preemptive wars based upon false 'intel'.

In fact, Ms Plame/Wilson's outing may have been done for that effect and not merely for 'revenge' for her husband's op-ed piece to the NYTimes !

If Iraq was set up with 'Curveball' and Chalabi, it seems logical that a legit non-proliferation entity in house, Brewster Jennings, had to be shut down so the next cavalcade of bullshit could commence.

My favorite part of Palast's article is the pre-9/11 NSA 'policy shift':

""A top-level CIA operative who spoke with us on condition of strictest anonymity said that, after Bush took office, There was a major policy shift at the National Security Agency. Investigators were ordered to back off from any inquiries into Saudi Arabian financing of terror networks, especially if they touched on Saudi royals and their retainers. That put the Bin Ladens, a family worth a reported $12 billion and a virtual arm of the Saudi royal household, off limits for investigation. Osama was the exception; he remained a wanted man, but agents could not look too closely at how he filled his piggy bank. The key rule of any investigation, follow the money, was now violated, and investigations-at least before September 11-began to die.""

Will Congress be able to investigate THAT policy shift and its effect on 9-11 ? Let's hope so soon, huh ?
