Feith Eyed In Leak

New York Daily News — Undersec’y Of Defense Eyed In Leak

There’s more trouble for Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith.

An FBI investigation into who handed government secrets to disgraced Iraqi National Congress leader Ahmed Chalabi is focusing on Feith, the new U.S. News & World Report reveals.

Feith and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz were Chalabi’s most ardent supporters, and it was Chalabi who turned over to the U.S. the Iraqis who fed America false information about Iraq’s alleged banned weapons program.

Feith told U.S. News that he last spoke with Chalabi in August 2003.
