Chalabi Crude.

How did I miss this bit of unbelievable Iraqi irony?

Ahmad Chalabi, liar and embezzler extraordinaire, has been appointed acting Oil Minister for Iraq. Apparently, he was already head of the Oil Council, a cabinet-level board.

No wonder the Iraqis are frustrated with American-style democracy... It's like putting Homer Simpson in charge of the donut factory!

Riverbend tells of a joke being circulated by the staff of the Iraqi Oil Ministry:
"You know how they used to check our handbags when we first walked into the ministry? Now WE check our handbags after we leave the ministry- you know- to see if Chalabi stole anything."
