Chalabi in the Gloss


In response to my roundup of links on the man who appears to be the Bush administration's handpicked leader for post-war Iraq, Ahmed Chalabi, a reader writes: "You might want to look at January's Vanity Fair which meets the bank fraud charge head on and shows why some on Capitol Hill dismiss it. It also provides an alternative explanation for why the CIA would like to consign Chalabi to obscurity."

No link for the piece, but I thought it was worth passing on. I hope it was written by diarist Dominick Dunne: We'll be sure to find out that Chalabi has some kind of shadowy, vaguely thrilling connection to the Hell's Angels…
