Re: Richard Perle's Puppet

It has been the plan of the Perle Cabal for years and years to overthrow Saddam Hussein and put Ahmed Chalabi in his throne. Because Chalabi is known as Perle's stooge, in recent weeks he has been sounding off as a critic of the Pentagon warhawks. This script has been written by Perle & Co., which is how they operate. It makes Chalabi seem above the fray and a man of the Iraqi common folk. Sally Quinn, wife of the Washington Post's Ben Bradlee and a reporter of the first rank, comes out of semi-retirement to produce this extra long, necessarily long, takeout on Chalabi. Read as much as you need to, but before you bow out go to the last few graphs and see Sally's windup. JW]
