Multiple sources in US military intelligence, diplomatic, and Bush Administration circles are confirming "rock solid" information that Iraqi National Congress (INC) leader Ahmed Chalabi and his security chief, Araz Habib, have both been working with Iranian intelligence for several years. At this writing, most reports emphasize the role of Habib, who has directed the Information Collection Program. However reports are currently emerging, citing intelligence sources and unnamed "US officials," that state Chalabi himself is personally involved.
According to a Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) source quoted in the Seattle Times article below, Iranian intelligence used Chalabi's INC to funnel disinformation to the US in an effort to provoke the US into overthrowing Saddam Hussein. The intelligence provided by Chalabi and the INC -- almost all of it now discredited -- formed the central basis for the Bush Administration's publicly stated reasons for invading Iraq.
The CIA and other US intelligence agencies warned off on Chalabi, saying he and his information were unreliable. The Bush Administration -- particularly hardliners like Vice President Cheney, Sec. of Defense Rumsfeld, and Dept. Sec. of Defense Wolfowitz -- derided the warnings and insisted the INC's information be taken at face value. (Related story 1 -- Related story 2)
