I was so glad to hear that Condi Rice called members of Iraq's new government , including vice president Ahmad Chalabi. I am not a great fan of Chalabi. Today, he is now one of Iraq's smartest politicians. I never liked his ways even when he was close to the US administration, but now Chalabi got his new job not from the US but from the landmark elections and the political fight that followed it. Even if Chalabi is a crook, the US can now wash its hands and leave it up to Iraq's new rulers no matter how imperfect they may seem. If they owned it, they will fix it, one day I hope.
