To: STARWISE; WhistlingPastTheGraveyard
In their tirade against the Bush White House, Isikoff and Corn found a hero: Paul Pillar, then the CIA officer in charge of the Middle East. During the 2004 election campaign, I wrote in a column that Pillar was delivering off-the-record briefings to citizens groups around the country, and was highly critical of the president seeking a second term. Probing such subversion at the CIA might have been an interesting exercise for an investigative reporter, but that is not what this book is about.

Paul Pillar's given speeches at the Middle East Institute, which is Saudi-funded and which was against regime change and Chalabi's Iraqi National Congress.
