More on Chalabi

Adam Daifallah has another important post and a number of good links on the raid on Ahmad Chalabi's residence. Of special note are two under-reported facts:

"1. The raid was not U.S.-led. It was led by the Iraqi police, which are run by Iraqis. CPA spokesman Dan Senor: 'To my knowledge, Mr. Chalabi is not actually being pursued for anything. And I don't think the INC is, either.' Referring questions to Iraqi police, Senor said: 'My understanding is they are the ones who seized any documents. It was an Iraqi-led investigation, it was an Iraqi-led raid.'
2. According to CNN, Chalabi was not even named in the search warrant, making it even more curious that his house was raided."

Whenever Chalabi's name appears in the news check out Daifallah's blog. (No pressure Adam.)
