The White House & Chalabi

From Eli Lake in the NYSun: “One Bush administration official who is supportive of Mr. Chalabi told the Sun: ‘I don’t know what this is about, but we’ve just shot ourselves in the head.’” Lake reports that White House officials knew the raid was happening, but Bremer made the call.

Also of note: “On the same day, two American intelligence officers visited the home of author and Iraqi human rights leader Kanan Makiya asking about documents from the Baathist archives associated with his Iraq Memory Foundation.”
