Ahmed Chalabi Returns to Government

One of the new Iraqi Government's new officials is former Bush League advisor Ahmed Chalabi. Famed for passing along "precise" information on Iraq's Virtual WMDs, and later for allegedly spying for Iran, the BBC reports on a remarkable comeback:
...Mr Chalabi will act as oil minister.

Mr Chalabi will also take one of the deputy prime minister's posts.

Amazing what an American-issued arrest warrant will do for an Iraqi politician's career, isn't it?
