Negroponte Gets the Chalabi Endorsement

This morning on ABC’s This Week, Ahmed Chalabi — neo-con darling and suspected Iranian spy — gives John Negroponte’s nomination the thumbs up:

Ambassador Negroponte is back in Washington with a new job, and I congratulate him. He’s going to be national director of intelligence. And I think he’s eminently suited for that job.

In other news, Chalabi is back in regular contact with U.S. officials in Iraq. According to Chalabi:

Dialogue has resumed with the United States representative in Iraq, diplomatic representative, and it is an ongoing process now. It was restored after the election.

You know what they say: never let a little espionage get between friends.
