Chalabi: Prime Minister?


by Mary

Like a particularly bad penny, our first Iraqi friend, Ahmed Chalabi, is a contender for the Iraqi Prime Minister job (via Laura Rozen). Chalabi thanked the American people, but then made it clear that the Iraqis voted out the American puppet in a display of genuine democracy.

Mr. Chalabi said the impact of the elections would reach the entire Islamic world. "Iraqi people voted out a government which had the support of the United States and 150,000 troops in Iraq, with funding 50 times more than the other lists combined, especially on TV time. They did that in the face of major threats by terrorists. The Iraqi people demonstrated this can happen."

Wonder when Bush will invite him to the White House.
