It would appear there is even more to it than Chalabi being a con man.
Agency: Chalabi group was front for Iran

I read the Newsday piece a little earlier.

God, what idiots the neocons are!

What arrogant, overconfident, incompetent fools.

They are suckers, they are dupes, they are . . . no, truely stupid and deluded people aren't traitors. They're just pathetic.

Was this linked to the story below? Because that's my city too.

Chalabi sounds quite a character, Machiaveli quotes notwithstanding. Sounds as though he'd be quite at home running the gendarmes in WWII Casablanca. Maybe it's a shame that there are too many Major Strassers in Iraq, and not enough Rick Blaines.

About New York: There's an odd resonance going on in my head with Iraq. Something to do with the fact that the guys in uniforms, the guys supposedly trained for these kinds of bad stuff, are showing all the signs of panic and disorganisation, while the civilians are just trying to quietly get on with doing the obvious things....

The link appears to be bloggered. I think Patrick's referring to the post entitled Denying failure.

As for New York and Giuliani: sheesh, I had no idea. Sometimes it seems as though what I thought I knew about 9/11 changes every month.

Yes, I meant to point to "Denying Failure," the post about NYC, 9/11, and specifically Giuliani.
