Rumsfeld and Cheney Meet With Chalabi

Ahmad Chalabi is getting the star treatment. The neocon purveyor of faulty intelligence met Monday first with Donald Rumsfeld and then with Dick Cheney.

Arianna tells all in My Dinner With Chalabi.

Other persons he's met with while here: Sen. Carl Levin, Rep. Tom Lantos, and Dick Holbrooke. He now praises Henry Waxman and hates Paul Bremer.

It sounds like his current meme is to protest he's being treated as a scapegoat of the CIA while declaring that human rights abuses, not WMD's, are why he made taking out Saddam his life mission.

Saddam's has been in jail for over a year and it seems the torture of Iraqis by Iraqis continues. But 2,000 young American lives have been lost. I'm not buying anything Mr. Chalabi has to sell, unless its a speedy withdrawal of American troops.

    Why isn't this guy arrested as an Iranian spy?

    While Scooter takes the fall for DICK Cheney, our esteemed Vice President DICK (A.k.a. the Archangel of Death) Cheney continues to colluded with Chalabi. Regardless of what happens in this country politically between the Democrats and Republicans for the next three years, our conservative friends will continue their war march wherever it takes them. I still can't believe I'm living through this part of history, I came in on the tail end of Vietnam, put up with Ronald Reagan -- oh how I long for the days of Ronald Reagan, when everyone knew quasi-conservative warmongering hooligans for what they were. Even halfway intelligent presidents realized the necessity of keep them from seizing the country by the throat and bending it to their will. Sadly I got to witness the phenomena of DICK Cheney being all but forgotten in the interim between administrations, I'm still trying to get over the fact that George Bush picked Cheney to be his vice president, but of course knowing George very well at this point, it's completely understandable, he's Dick's wet dream of a president. All those years Cheney was just hanging from the rafters waiting, biding his time for the right moment to swoop in like Dracula sink his fangs into the neck of liberty and drain the blood of truth from our democracy once again. DICK Cheney makes me understand why so many people believe in the concept of EVIL, not that I do, but DICK surely fits into my moral and ethical conceptualization of a "bad man" yes... a very bad man. Though I avoid making anchored judgments of anyone I don't know personally, I've seen too much of DICK throughout his life, watched him closely, as he consistently supported what I know to be antithetical to creation of a healthy society. I like to compare DICK to Osama bin Laden. On the danger scale, Dick is the equivalent of an African Cape buffalo and Osama is just a Tsetse Fly carrying sleeping sickness. Both can kill you, but your priority had better be the buffalo in front of you, or you'll never live to get sick. It's going to take a lot more than Scooter Libby spilling his guts to bring down the Prince of Darkness. He could take a half a dozen scooters in the chest and still keep coming. The only way to drop this snorting beast is with a big bore indictment and some heavy caliber politics to back it up. I'd be very surprised if he retires, as some are speculating. You don't come this close to realizing your dream and then just walk away.

    Chalabi is the chosen 'Prince of Wales' for the future "Former Iraq" (H. Kissinger, early 2004: "There is no more Iraq. There will be three territories."). He will be the Central governor through which the three territories, mainly the two which have oil wealth, will negotiate the sale of their assets at bottom dollar prices to Bush's US oil cronies. He's VERY important. After all, he's a PRINCE.
