The exiled Iraqi who provided faulty intelligence on Iraqi WMDs to the Pentagon and the N.Y. Times is acting as a broker between the U.S. and Iran, according to Raw Story.
Ahmed Chalabi, the man who helped provide cooked intelligence on Iraq to the Pentagon and the New York Times in the lead-up to war, is once again being engaged in US policy decisions, current and former intelligence officials say.
According to two former high level counterintelligence officials, one former senior counterterrorist official and another intelligence officer, Chalabi is acting as broker between the US Ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad, and Iranian officials in what are now stalled diplomatic efforts between the US and Iran.
“[Ahmed] Chalabi inserted himself and brought a proposal to Zel,” one intelligence source said.
