Whoa! That was fast.
Ahmed Chalabi is Iraq's new oil minister. Iraq has an energy crisis and Chalabi is just the man to solve it, or so the Washington ghosted story-line would have us believe. I figured the Bush administration still needed Ahmed around despite his electoral goose-egg, but this is bold indeed.
Chalabi is going to have produce results in this very hot seat or risk losing what political capital he still has left. Then again, what if the energy crisis suddenly gets better? All credit to Chalabi. Neat.
Conspiracists, have at it.
