There appear to be two problems with that log:

a) The wireless card isn't reporting successful authentication.  Might
be good to try wpa_supplicant on its own and see if that connects.  That
requires writing a config file for it and running it with a bunch of
debug options to see what it's doing, much like NM does.  But this
isolates the bug between NM and wpa_supplicant.

b) The dhclient isn't accepting the DBus option, which means it and
dhclient-script need to be patched for dbus
