Chalabi is going to run Iraq's Oil Ministry You have really got to be kidding: [/font] Reuters per MSNBC Incredible ... this known liar and crook (convicted of embezzlement in Jordan) has just been appointed as acting oil minister of Iraq.. Doesn't it strike you as just a wee bit odd that this highly questionable, convicted felon, with no petroleum experience whatsoever, is appointed to the head the vast oil wealth of Iraq? Whee ... no doubt we will see some "scratch your back/under the table" oil deals coming out of this one. Let the corruption begin anew ... Yes sir, things will be soon be going hunky-dory in Iraq.
