it's really a great con on chalabi's part. for years, he was looking for a sympathetic partner to take down saddam. then he found the bush administration, so blinded by their own desire to take out saddam that it became more a matter of selling the idea than performing due diligence on the allegations.

I hope some of all this is sinking in with middle America--that they've been lied to, disregarded, and put in danger by the current administration, and all for a project, transformation of the middle east, that, when push comes to shove, I doubt the administration has the will to carry through.
