Chalabi and Code Breaking

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.

    aw, c’mon- don’t you think that it was just George Tenet, the candy-ass Clinton appointee, was mad at Chalabi because he wanted a puppet, and not an independent minded Thomas Jefferson of Arabia? And couldn’t we get something better from the UN than a scrap of paper- like some troops and stuff from the Security Council delegate’s countries? Man, the US really can’t pull conspiracies like they used to. I’ve been gypped.
