Curveball was a real winner

The source the White House used to make a case that Iraq had biological weapons not only made the whole thing up, but he turns out (surprise, surprise) to be a crook and a loser. The self-styled "star chemical engineer" barely earned his degree, and was apparently wanted for theft from a TV production company where he was formerly employed.

I recall at one point the dude's sanity was viewed as questionable as well. The rational thing to do was to be skeptical of any claims "Curveball" was making. The US government did the exact opposite (again, big surprise, eh?). I'm sure the families of Iraqis killed as a result of the invasion and occupation will be pleased to know that he did manage to con his way into getting asylum and is living somewhere in Germany, out of harm's way.
