But this seems like a really bad idea:
NAJAF, Iraq (AP) — Iraqi politician Ahmad Chalabi accused CIA director George Tenet on Thursday of being responsible for allegations that the former exile leader passed intelligence information to Iran. Chalabi, a former member of the Iraqi Governing Council, made the accusation after President Bush announced that Tenet was stepping down as CIA director for personal reasons.
Tenet's announcement came amid new storms over intelligence issues, including an alleged Pentagon leak of highly classified intelligence to Chalabi.
Chalabi told reporters that Tenet "was behind the charges against me that claimed that I gave intelligence information to Iran. I denied these charges and I will deny them again."
Chalabi seems to be taking a two-fold gamble here. First he's betting that Tenet really is stepping out because he's "fallen from grace" in some way. There's a good chance this is true, but it's still too early to tell. Then, assuming he's right on number 1, he assumes that Tenet's reversal will somehow discredit the accusations against him.
This seems incredibly opportunistic. It could well backfire on him.
