Chalabi, multi-tasking

"Ahmad Chalabi is surely a busy man, what with running Iraq's oil ministry being only his latest political venture," writes Laura. "But he has taken the time to read and respond to the [CJR article] 'How Chalabi Played the Press.' What's really worth reading are the responses from the LA Times' Bob Drogin and Knight-Ridder's Jonathan Landay to the Chalabi letter, which asserts that the INC had nothing to do with [anonymous Iraqi defector] 'Curveball,' a point backed up by the Silberman-Robb commission report."
