Liars seek help from a liar that lies better than they lieposted by Bill Arnett @ 12:01 PM Permalink
It is absolutely amazing how successful bush/cheney have been at keeping the Iraqi Oil Wars off our TV screens unless they need a particular piece of propaganda pushed, like the "handing over security for Karbala" to Iraqi troops.
You'd think they would do everything in their power to prevent something like this as reported by the McClatchy News Bureau titled Chalabi back in action in Iraq:
Ahmad Chalabi, the controversial, ubiquitous Iraqi politician and one-time Bush administration favorite, has re-emerged as a central figure in the latest U.S. strategy for Iraq.The article continues along, with even General Petraeus singing the praises of Chalabi, one of the key liars that helped the bush maladministration lie the country into the Iraqi Oil War.
His latest job: To press Iraq's central government to use early security gains from the surge to deliver better electricity, health, education and local security services to Baghdad neighborhoods. That's the next phase of the surge plan. Until now, the U.S. military, various militias, insurgents and some U.S. backed groups have provided those services without great success. […]
Chalabi, in the run-up to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in March 2003, provided White House and Pentagon officials and journalists with a stream of bogus or exaggerated intelligence about Iraq's weapons programs and ties to terrorism. He also suggested that he'd lead Iraq to make peace with Israel and welcome permanent U.S. military bases, which could apply pressure to Iran and Syria.
I seem to remember that as soon as Saddam's army was beaten he made a beeline straight to the Iranian intelligence services and conferred with them at length.
Yep, a real trustworthy guy, Chalabi is.
