Ahmed's little tour of Washington

Senior Bush administration official on Ahmed Chalabi:

"Think of him as a former football player - that was all then. That's what he did in his other life."

"That" includes lying about Iraq's WMD, spying for Iran, embezzling funds and leading clueless American officials to believe that the Iraqi people would welcome the "liberation" forces with flowers and roses.

The jokers are running the asylum.

Chalabi is giving a speech to Washington's leading neo-conservative chicken-hawks and ideological fraudsters, the American Enterprise Institute.

Now there's a bunch of Harvard graduates with credibility on its side. Just remember, according to today's talk, "the Iraq war is still winnable." When was the last time any of these dangerous zealots saw anything in Iraq other than the conference centre inside Baghdad's Green Zone?

OMG I thought Chalabi had died a natural political death after being totally exposed as a complete fraud.
Those Neo-Cons are shameless.

Corruption gets you far in the corridors of Washington.

And the speech is being delivered by John McCain. Will be a wonderful speech, no doubt.

I understand from all this that Chalabi is an enterprising chap. Do you think, if Iraq goes down in a screaming heap, we could ask him if he could run for our PM slot?
