Reader comment on item: 'Walking Back the Cat' On Chalabi

Submitted by John Berg (United States), Jun 23, 2004 at 16:17

The US knew that Iran knew its code was broken. In fact it should assume the US can break a code in 36 hours and be prepared to change their code every 36 hours. C~ had ceased to be an asset. Using him to cause a code change and an opportunity for more info would also ensure his being useless to Iran. Detente.
