Chalabi Dupes Freepers Too
Freepers have been fanatical about flogging the so-called "UN Oil For Food" scandal since it threatened to embarrass the UN, Kofi Annan, and certain European anti-war politicians, and hopefully by extension the entire anti-war movement (don't ask me how, it just would).
Josh Marshall reminds us that the investigation has gone nowhere and seems to be yet another Chalabi disinformation campaign.
The evidence for these particular charges stemmed entirely from a collection of documents allegedly in the possession of Mr. Ahmed Chalabi, documents Chalabi apparently deemed too important to let anyone outside his circle see.
