36. Borger, Hersh and Pincus are all mouthpieces for Intelligence insiders.
That doesn't mean they're not good. But they have for years served as conduits for various factions within the spook community and the pentagon.

Now to your point.

You are suggesting, as I get it, that Rummy would not allow himself to be tainted with the notion that his DOD has been duped by a double-dealing Chalabi. There is merit to that inference.

But it is also possible Rummy and his crowd will pin the blame on Tenet, an easy scapegoat almost certain to be jettisoned before the election. They can say Tenet vetted Chalabi and Tenet believed in WMDs and Tenet's got to take the fall for misleading the Shrubbies.

However, it does seem that Feith gets mud on himself out of this. But I believe Feith will be axed anyhow. Rummy needs to lop off a lobe or two to survive.

I believe that this is a desperation move to try to get Chalabi into the inner sanctum of the Shiite community.

The real test is this, imo: If Chalabi is truly a suspected double-agent, why the fuck hasn't he been arrested?
