100. easy answer to your last question
he got the intel he passed on...from the connections through these folks. Take him down completely... and he takes others down with him.

I think there are a lot of knives out in a lot of corners for a lot of "each others" in this story. It is one of the stories, imo, that has the most potential to force a major implosion on the right. Think about this - there is no question that Chalabi duped the neocons with the prewar intel. They didn't care where he got it, they wanted it. But it is already known that this happened (Chalabi has admitted it months ago)... so the Iran connection adds a "yuck" and irony effect but not much more interms of overall public perception.

However, if, as is alleged, he has been passing intel back to Iran - and if it has been ongoing and recent... just what kind of intel would he be passing along. What would Iran want after Saddam goes down...let's see - getting the US out... so if, by extension, this story would lead to intelligence that has been used against US troops on the ground - or against other "assetts" or in other ways that have worked towards the defeat of the US in Iraq... the public reaction would make the public revulsion at Watergate look mild.

But whether that were to ever pass or not - following the bouncing ball on this story - is very interesting given how many players have reasons to have a dog in the hunt (the outcome and perceived outcome) and have serious grudges against other players. Think the claymation mtv death match's - with multiple players.
