Thank you, Lesley Stahl, for your delightfully nasty 60 Minutes report on Ahmad Chalabi and the Iraqi National Congress, and especially pointing this out:
You might think that with all the questions about his credibility and the bad blood between him and the CIA, ties would have been severed. But it turns out the U.S. is still paying Chalabi's organization, the INC, for intelligence gathering in Iraq.
"It's a very small program in terms of cost," says Chalabi, who would not disclose the amount.
Stahl said the cost came out to $350,000 a month: "That's not very small."
$4.2 million a year? Forty-two cents would be too much.
