    Chalabi is going to run Iraq's Oil Ministry

    You have really got to be kidding:

    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. :rolleyes:

    Odd? Given the way things have been handled, I'd say expected.

    Although it is nice to see Iraq's oil production levels up to a little more than half the pre-war numbers 2 years after the fact. Who knows, maybe they'll get back to their salad days sometime. Mmmmm, salad with oil dressing.

    It's the fox in the henhouse. Chalabi's interests lie not in Iraq but in Iran...this will be trouble, even if it's not of his own making (his Iranian ties will not make him popular with the Iraqi people).

    Looks like Iranian master spy is pissing on the Bush Administration again.

    First he suckered Bush into wiping out Iran's mortal enemy. Then he gets himself appointed as Iraq's oil minister.

    Damnit he's good.
