Josh thinks that Chalabi was an Iranian spy. Bruce Schneier notes that it looks more like Chalabi was set up to take the fall because of an encryption issue. He is missing the larger issue. Chalabi had a large batch of files implicating UN officials and foreign leaders in the UN OIl For Food Scandal. The US wanted UN approval for its power transfer arrangement. The US raided Chalabi’s office and took away his computer files (probably including his UN Oil For Food files/evidence). The UN Security Council then voted 15-0 to support the US. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
