More on Habbush adds a new twist to Ron Suskind's allegation that the CIA forged a letter linking Iraq with the September 11 attacks. It shows that Ayad Allawi was at the CIA just days before he gave the letter to Telegraph journalist Con Coughlin.

We're still waiting for Coughlin's take on this. The Telegraph reported the story on its website on Tuesday night, coyly adding in the final paragraph that
The letter's existence was first reported in December 2003 after a copy was passed to The Sunday Telegraph by a member of Iraq's transitional government.
On, I ask a bit more about why the UK's official inquiries were not told - or at least didn't report - that an Iraqi source had told MI6 that Saddam had no wmd.
