CHALABI BEHIND BARS?….CNN is just a fount of information today. A few minutes ago they reported that arrest warrants have been issued in Iraq for both Ahmed and Salem Chalabi. The charge is counterfeiting.

Ahmed Chalabi, on the phone from Tehran, says it’s all bogus. He’s done nothing wrong and (if I understood him correctly) implied that of course he’ll return to Iraq and answer the charges.

The reaction from the White House appears to be “Ahmed who?”

Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Ah, via Atrios, I see that the charge against Salem Chalabi is murder. It’s only Uncle Ahmed who’s accused of counterfeiting.
