Irony lives

Sidney Blumenthal:

Either Chalabi perpetrated the greatest con since the Trojan horse or he was the agent of influence for the most successful intelligence operation conducted by Iran, or both.

Sidney has the goods this morning on the FBI going around to the various neo-con offices in Washington and interviewing people about Chalabi as part of an espionage investigation. That's right. The guys who screamed "treason" the loudest whenever someone questioned their plans for Iraq are now themselves the subject of an espionage investigation.

It's about time for some prominent voices to state what is becoming clearer by the day: the Bush administration was played like a cheap violin. The spooks are sitting back in a mixture of disgust and awe. Disgust at the Bushies who bought a bill of goods and awe at the skill at which that bill of goods was sold.

The Bush administration gives proof to the old P.T. Barnum saying that there is a sucker born every minute. This administration is full of them.
