Ooh! I think we found our exit strategy!

Ooh! I think we found our exit strategy!
Ooh! I think we found our exit strategy!: "The love-fest between American conservatives and their favorite Iraqi exile Ahmad Chalabi has gone sour for the administration. AP reports this morning that U.S. soldiers and Iraqi police have surrounded Chalabi's residence in Baghdad to see if he is hiding fellow members of his exile group, the Iraqi National Congress, from police. According to NBC News, an Iraqi judge issued arrest warrants for 16 people affiliated with his group reportedly involved in 'alleged financial misdealings at the end of last year during the conversion from Saddam-era dinars to new Iraqi dinars.' The Miami Herald writes, 'As the Pentagon's favorite Iraqi, he symbolizes the fundamental mistakes of U.S. policy and administration unwillingness to reconsider a wayward course.' Time after time, the White House has inexplicably trusted Chalabi, staking its case for war and how we would be welcomed afterward on his countless lies."
