Scum Rises to the Top

Is anyone surprised by this? It's kind of slid in a little under the radar thanks to other goings-on, but the egregious Ahmad Chalabi, war monger, liar, possible Iranian agent, etc., has been appointed (on an "interim" basis - sure) to head the one Iraqi ministry we really care about, the one we defended after the fall of Baghdad - the Oil Ministry.

Thwarted in his bid to be Iraq’s leader, one-time Pentagon favourite Ahmad Chalabi has nevertheless captured a key position in the new government – a deputy prime minister’s spot and temporary control of the lucrative oil ministry.

With his nephew also installed as finance minister, Chalabi and his family appear to have a firm grip on the country’s purse strings.
