Chalabi - In Washington Now

-- by Dave Johnson

Achmed Chalabi in DC, "The fact that I misled the U.S. is an urban myth."

But previously Chalabi had something different to say on the subject:

Chalabi, asked whether his Iraqi National Congress manipulated the Bushies into invading a country that did not attack us and did not threaten us, has this to say:
"'Our objective has been achieved. That tyrant Saddam is gone, and the Americans are in Baghdad. What was said before is not important.' "
And, before that,
frontline: truth, war and consquences: introduction | PBS:
"When asked if he feels any unease or discomfort at the fact that some Americans feel the United States was suckered into a war under the false pretenses of disarming Saddam of weapons of mass destruction, Chalabi replies, 'No. ... We are in Baghdad now.'"

So you wouldn't expect the administration to continue to embrace Chalabi? Together, they pulled off this magnificent con game! They've gotta pay him off and reward him, don't they?
