How Many Have To Die For Curveball's Green Card?

Look, we all know that Judith Miller's super secret source for her bogus Saddam/WMD stories, "Curveball," was lying.

No biggie there.

But CBS' Bob Simon has finally found "Curveball," who lives in Germany.

Curve Ball is an Iraqi defector named Rafid Ahmed Alwan, who arrived at a German refugee center in 1999. To bolster his asylum case and increase his importance, he told officials he was a star chemical engineer who had been in charge of a facility at Djerf al Nadaf that was making mobile biological weapons.

60 Minutes has learned that Alwan’s university records indicate he did study chemical engineering but earned nearly all low marks, mostly 50s. Simon’s investigation also uncovered an arrest warrant for theft from the Babel television production company in Baghdad where he once worked.

The sickest, most twisted part of this whole bloody mess?

Why did he do it?

"It was a guy trying to get his green card essentially, in Germany, and playing the system for what it was worth," says (CIA Senior Official, Tyler) Drumheller.

Oh, by the way...

Curveball was fired from his low-level engineering job in 1995, and his brother was one of Chalabi's bodyguards.

Heaviest of sighs.

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
