Whats $300 million between friends?
Looks like King Abdullah of Jordan has agreed to pardon our good friend Ahmad Chalabi over that little bank fraud incident in the late 1980s (this is according to Patrick Cockburn of the Independent). Well, I guess Chalabi doesn't have to worry about how he's going to effectively serve as deputy prime minister of Iraq from inside a Jordanian prison (he was sentenced to 22 years). Does anybody wonder how many free passes is this guy gonna get? It's quite remarkable, in a way.
