And just think, the Oil Ministry was the one government building our troops protected from being looted two years ago.

I guess we needn't have bothered.

Let's make "Curveball" Minister of Defence...

From the article: "Chalabi will be acting oil minister..."
Was that fact just conveniently lost?

explain to me very carefully now why the war wasn't about the oil. because bushcheneyco seems out to convince me that it was in fact, all about oil. i mean,first the saudi man-date and now this? i dont need more proof.

cognitive dissonance, thy name is modern-day republican believer.

From Reuters:

Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari, whose government list was approved by parliament on Thursday, has vowed to make permanent appointments swiftly to several ministries for which he tapped acting ministers, such as oil and defence.

But Western and Iraqi oil executives said Chalabi, once tipped to be a leader in Iraq before he fell out with his U.S. backers, might take precious little time to try and make his mark on the oil sector, home to 115 billion barrels of reserves.

Chalabi's aides said the former financier could head the ministry indefinitely in the absence of consensus over a permanent replacement.

"Dr. Ahmad may remain oil minister for weeks or months. It depends on reaching a political agreement," Nabil al-Moussawi, a senior Chalabi aide told Reuters.

. . . Some Western and Iraqi oil executives expressed concern that Chalabi would install his people in the oil ministry and turn contracts political in a country where sectarian tensions have been running high.

"Chalabi won't let go of the oil ministry that easily -- now that he's finally got what he wants," said an Iraqi oil executive.


P.S. Ask your good friend Dylan if he’d gaze a while down the old street.

Not just Oil Minister, folks, but also Deputy Prime Minister. I can't wait for the Bush fellators to explain this one.

That's almost as funny as Jon Stewart: "You mean after all the fighting, the President of Iraq will have the word 'Taliban' in his name?"

Oooo. Wouldn't you like a piece of his retirement package ?

The problem is that the new Iraqi government can't agree on anything. Think a vacant post would be better than Chalabi?

Is that it or do you have any constructive criticism?

Posted by: Robert Zimmerman | Apr 29, 2005 8:13:34 PM

Anthony Cordesman, a Middle East expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, told Reuters that many Iraqis would consider the plum oil job for Mr. Chalabi "putting a fox in charge of the henhouse." The choice, he added, "is going to make it extremely easy for people to make charges about corruption."(From MoDos' latest column)

Yeah, what could possibly go wrong with Chalabi in charge anyway?
