points re habbush Edit

"fanciful conspiracy theory that British intelligence informed the White House that Iraq's intelligence chief had told them that the WMD's no longer existed."

q: so.... shipster didnt meet with habbush prewar?? q: or... shipster did meet with habbush, but noone told the US? q: or.. shipster met with habbush, and brits told us, but habbush didn't say theres 'no wmds'.

q: is coughlin saying that if habbush had told shipster, and shipster had told dearlove, and dearlove had told cheney, that coughlin would have some opinion about that?

points re letter Edit

  • Coughlin says he got the memo from Ayad Allawi
  • Coughlin denies he got it from the CIA
  • Coughlin says he got the memo in November 2003, in Baghdad
  • Coughlin says they has no means of verifying authenticity at the time


But even though I went through this in painstaking detail with Mr Suskind, he tried to persuade me that I had in fact received the information from the CIA, which was simply not the case."

question: where did allawi get it from? question: did allawi tell coughlin where he got it?
