Ahmad Chalabi may not be in new US-appointed government




The US has decided to exclude from the interim Iraqi government the majority of politicians who have served on the US-appointed Governing Council over the last year.


In a report on Saturday, The Washington Post cited unnamed US and UN officials who claimed an entirely new Iraqi government would be picked to assume power on 30 June.

The latest shift in policy comes as the US-led occupation administration faces some contentious and long-standing issues ahead of the power transfer.

The Post said at the top of the list of those probably to be jettisoned was Ahmad Chalabi, a Shia politician who for years was a Pentagon favourite and popular with Vice President Richard Cheney.

2. If they the think the blowback from Richard Clarke was bad...
wait until the Chalabi book eventually comes out. Wouldn't be surprised if he has nude pics of Condi, Rummy and everything...

3. does anybody else think. . .
that it's slightly reprehensible that Chalabi, after lying about Saddam's WMD's has reportedly been, not only rewarded with power, but paid $364,000 per month for the last year. . ?

Bear in mind that Bill Clinton made $200,000 per year as president.
