US stops funding Iraqi politician

The Pentagon has stopped funding a leading Iraqi politician - Governing Council (IGC) member Ahmad Chalabi.
Mr Chalabi's Iraqi National Congress has been paid $335,000 a month as part of an intelligence-gathering programme.

The long-time exile was believed to have been secretly instrumental in persuading the US administration to remove former President Saddam Hussein.

But he has recently criticised US tactics in Iraq as well as special United Nations envoy Lakhdar Brahimi
Might I also remind the cousins, that Jordan has a very nicely appointed bijoux residence with his name on the door, just waiting for his occupation?

Time to drop any ideas of making this person, President of Iraq. I just know that was his, and certain of the US administrations end game, but I think they've realised they don't want the whole country up in open revolt.

Get rid.

Chalabi was interviewed on Radio 4's 'Today' programme this morning. He was trying to make out that the elderly sarin shell recently used as part of an IED was proof that Saddam had WMD.

I suppose we have to hand it to Celestial Conductor and Captain Scarlett who celarly share this view, and who managed to identify one shell in the whole of Iraq, and then convince people that this was a reason for going to war.
