FT.com Home UK FBI may whitewash Wolfowitz

FT.com Home UK: "If the former banker and exiled opposition leader is found to have given Iran such sensitive information, important figures in the administration who had backed Mr Chalabi as a future leader of Iraq could be tarnished by association. For this reason, critics of the Bush administration are not confident that the CIA or the FBI will be either swift or thorough in their investigations.
Mr Chalabi has had a long association with 'hawks' in Washington - notably Paul Wolfowitz, deputy defence secretary, and Douglas Feith, defence under-secretary and Mr Wolfowitz's deputy. But Mr Chalabi lost credibility with the CIA and the State Department during the Clinton administration, even as Congress passed the Iraq Liberation Act in 1998, giving funding to Mr Chalabi's Iraqi National Congress."
