Scapegoat for dinner? Again?

All together now, Bushleaguers:

"Thank God for Ahmed Chalabi!
He always gives us someone to blame, so the buck stops there."

Don't they wish it actually could (stop there)?

And don't they ALMOST sound sincere as they try to slide gently away from the fact that they put him in that position over the objections of people with actual brains?

From The Washington Monthly

"CHALABI YET AGAIN....Via Digby, a Knight Ridder story today about al-Qaqaa contains the following priceless nugget:

Al Qaqaa was on a classified list of Iraqi weapons facilities that the CIA provided to Pentagon and military officials before the invasion, said the U.S. intelligence official.

But when the Pentagon and U.S. Central Command produced their own list of sites that a limited number of U.S. 'exploitation teams' should search, priority was given to those identified by exiled Iraqi opposition groups, he said. Al Qaqaa wasn't one of them.

'The top of the list was dominated by nuclear facilities and places where we expected to find chemical and biological weapons,' he said. 'Iraqi exiles had a very heavy hand in determining which places got looked at first.'

There is, it seems, literally no end to the damage that Ahmed Chalabi has done to American" security. No end."

And there seems to be no end to the amount of blame-shifting and finger-pointing this Band of Inept and Incompetent Brothers will do to try to squirm out of taking responsibility for any of their increasingly terrifying number of failures.
