68. "I don't think the Bushies would allow this much egg on their faces...
...as a means to legitimize Chalabi."

I absolutely agree.

The reason I originally raised the question of why wasn't he arrested is that I think that it's a consequence of the present positioning of the CIA and the Administration. If he's an agent of Iran, and the Administration knows that, wouldn't the logical thing for them to do be to arrest him ASAP? What, or who, is holding them back? Well, the CIA is probably the only other player with enough leverage in what goes on in Iraq to prevent the US military from arresting him. Pure speculation at this point, as I don't have any facts that would shed light on this issue one way or the other -- but why would the CIA prevent the Administration from arresting Chalabi?

That boggles me.
