May 22, 2004 -- WASHINGTON - Jordan's King Abdullah fueled the U.S. move against Iraqi leader Ahmed Chalabi by providing bombshell intelligence that his group was spying for Iran, The Post has learned. An explosive dossier that the Jordanian monarch recently brought with him to White House sessions with President Bush detailed Mafia-style extortion rackets and secret information on U.S. military operations being passed to Iran, diplomats said.

My suspicion was that we had someone in Iran that got thier mits on the stuff that got passed...
Strange that the conservative press is still sticking up for this guy (WSJ, NY Post)
I don't know what to think. That whole part of the world is so full of liars and double-dealers that it gives me a headache.
Chalabi, rug merchant extraordinaire! Where is the CIA and the FBI in all of this? Smokin' in the boy's room? And where would be the State Department?
Oh, of course we did. Nothing ever gets past our intelligence agencies.. </s>
I was suspicious of him from the start. It was a gut feeling I had.
Gotta love the NY Post for falsifying quotes from Chalabi. If you read his statements, did NOT ONCE say the "US was trying to intimidate him". In fact, his statements were rather odd. Every time you would expect to hear "US", "CPA" was stated repeatedly over and over and over again. I understand where they made the confusion, but he naver accused the US of anything, just the CPA (who cannot stand him).
Furthermore, Chalabi stated "I am America's best friend in Iraq". Chalabi is trying to make it perfectly clear that he is no enemy of the US, only Viceroy Bremer and his State Department Hooligans.
The intelligence agencies are named about the same as our Education Department (that doesn't educate) and the Transportation Department (that doesn't transport anyone)
You don't say... Thanks for the bump.
I will admit, I thought he was one of the "good guys" with only a Free Iraq's interests at heart..
When I read about the Jordanian accusations of embezzling, I thought it was probably a false accusation to make him look bad..
During the search for Saddam, (and his sons) Chalabi "appeared" to be trying hard to help, but mostly it was just talk..
Now this.. hard to know what freedom loving repatriots to trust, nowadays..
Will repeat what Jonathan Foreman (NY Post) said on Fox two nights ago. Chalabi had info on Oil for Food scandal with proof that Bremer was hiding incriminating stuff on UN officials. Since the UN is needed in coming months (and years), Bremer wants to look the other way and avoid problems with the UN. There were a few news blurbs a few weeks ago about Bremer withholding funds for the investigation that the Iraqi Governing Council had called for, independent of all other investigations.
I'm with you! He reminded me so much of the Iranian, Gorbanifar, of the mid-80s.
If I had doubts before they raided his house there are gone now since he showed his true colors sticking out at the U.S. the way he did.
If the US were serious about this war, Ahmed would have a hole in his forehead.
We're just praying the Iraqi's can make peace with each other. Won't happen, regrettably. The tribal & self-hatred is too strong.
Ah.Ch. playing both sides of the fence?
Or is this a lame attempt to build him up as a leader by making him look like an enemy of USA?
I'm going to bed-this is confusing.
