Truth to Power

Why?

Mr Chalabi’s return has outraged critics of the Iraq war, who point out that significant elements of the discredited US case for invading were provided by defectors with links to the INC, who made claims about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction that later proved baseless. Steven Clemons, the head of the New America Foundation thinktank, said: “Chalabi’s re-entry into Washington circles should be painful and embarrassing for him and his entourage.”

“Should” is the operative word here. This crook will be greeted with open arms by the rest of the crooks in Washington.

The question is, why is this man, who is under investigation by the FBI, being feted in DC at all?
