Is The General "Betraying" Us Again?

The wingnut right's new hero, General David Petraeus, is consulting with disgraced Iraqi conman, Ahmad Chalabi. Chalabi, you may remember, knowingly gave the Bush Administration false intelligence before the war began, is wanted as a criminal in Jordan for swindling millions of dollars, has been accused of selling US secrets to Iran, is thought to have intentionally undermined US de-baathification efforts, and has allegiances with anti-American cleric Muqtada al Sadr. Sounds like someone who should have the ear of the American's top military leader, right?

The man is a criminal and should be locked up in an Iraqi jail or at Guantanamo. He is responsible for a large portion of the bogus intelligence the Bushies used to start this disastrous war (which has benefited Chalabi a great deal financially). He should not be sitting down for tea with the United States' top military man in Iraq. Just another instance of the Bush Administration's criminal incompetence, and complete inability to learn from their mountain of mistakes.
