@StephenTouset - Thanks. That the attacker already knows the entire cyphertext is the part that I wasn't considering.

It seems like the 1st block only depends only on the IV, key, and plaintext. The second block depends on the previous block output (which depends on the IV, key, plaintext), key, and plaintext. I could abstract away the previous blocks output as just another randomly chosen IV, but in reality there is some sort of stateful information contained in there isn't there?
