Ex-Spy Alleges Bush White House Sought to Discredit Critic

“Glenn L. Carle, a former Central Intelligence Agency officer who was
a top counterterrorism official during the administration of President
George W. Bush, said the White House at least twice asked intelligence
officials to gather sensitive information on Juan Cole, a University
of Michigan professor who writes an influential blog that criticized
the war.”

This might even not be true, but just the fact that it is plausible
speaks volumes.
