Atrios linked this, so you may have already read it, but it's just astonishing: Did the Iranians feed the U.S. false information so we'd invade their enemy, Iraq? (And did Iran get secret information in the process?) Newsday says so:

"Iranian intelligence has been manipulating the United States through Chalabi by furnishing through his Information Collection Program information to provoke the United States into getting rid of Saddam Hussein," said an intelligence source Friday who was briefed on the Defense Intelligence Agency's conclusions, which were based on a review of thousands of internal documents.

The Information Collection Program also "kept the Iranians informed about what we were doing" by passing classified U.S. documents and other sensitive information, he said. The program has received millions of dollars from the U.S. government over several years.

How fast would the articles of impeachment be drawn up if it appeared that President Clinton or President Gore had sent young Americans to die on behalf of the Iranian mullahs?
