Axis of Idiocy

As almost everyone already knows, Ahmed Chalabi told the Iranians that the US had broken their secret codes. Fortunately, the damage of the Infamous Ahmed C's subterfuge appears to have been limited thanks to the incompetence of the Iranians:

According to American officials, the Iranian official in Baghdad, possibly not believing Mr. Chalabi's account, sent a cable to Tehran detailing his conversation with Mr. Chalabi, using the broken code. That encrypted cable, intercepted and read by the United States, tipped off American officials to the fact that Mr. Chalabi had betrayed the code-breaking operation, the American officials said. -via the NY Times
