Traitorgate trivia

If you've been following Traitorgate (Plamegate, whatever you will) affairs somewhat closely, you might have noticed the name "Ghorbanifar" crop up a couple of times, in regards to the Italian meetings that may or may not have resulted in the Niger uranium forgeries. I decided to take a peek at my usual source, Wikipedia, to find out more, and between him and Michael Ledeen, it's quite an interesting story. Apparently, they've got history of doing unpleasant things "for" the U.S. together going back to the Iran-Contra affair.
