Chalabi’s Crime?

Just curious–if Chalabi, a foreign national, was told intelligence information by a drunken US official and then passed it to the Iranians, did he commit a crime? Is that espionage? Josh Marshall has been saying Chalabi should be arrested forewith (and held as an enemy combatant?). But I believe I saw Bob Baer the other night saying that, if the circumstances as they have been reported are accurate, Chalabi wouldn’t have broken any law. Who is right?
