Ahmad Chalabi is certainly a man corrupt Washington can do business with.
This is Bush ideologue, David Frum, back in August:
"I know Ahmed Chalabi not well but reasonably well. He is not a perfect man. But in a country full of very, very imperfect people, I think he is and always has been our best hope as somebody who shares democratic ideals, has political effectiveness, understands the system, is committed to a united and democratic Iraq."
Who said a liar couldn't warm Washington's heart?
