AHMED CHALABI REDUX….Looks like I may have spoken too soon about Ahmed Chalabi’s position in post-war Iraq. The LA Times says today:

On new postwar Iraqi leadership, the Pentagon is now making decisions that could virtually ensure that Ahmed Chalabi, the controversial Iraqi National Congress leader who fled Iraq in 1958, becomes the transitional leader after the ouster of Saddam Hussein, U.S. officials say.

“Chalabi is the Pentagon’s guy, and the Pentagon is in charge,” an administration official said.

If this is true, it’s really not good news.
