In a brilliant counter to the growing support for rebel cleric Moqtada al Sadr, the Pentagon has sagely opted to prop up its favorite Iraqi son, Ahmed Chalabi, by raiding his home, taking his computers, and holding a gun to his head.

Chalabi, who has been repeatedly attacked by left-wing critics for being an untrustworthy opportunist who provided false intelligence to the US, embezzled millions from Jordan, and skimmed off the State Department and CIA budgets, has risen above such petty, partisan sniping to become the Pentagon's heir apparent. By cutting off his $335,000 monthly stipend and raiding his home, the Defense Department has cleverly set up Chalabi as a martyr in the eyes of the Iraqi public in order to speed Chalabi on his path to Iraqi political ascendency. In fact, the Medium Lobster has it on good authority that Paul Bremer is to provide Chalabi with his own extremist militia to start an anti-American uprising this summer.

Let this be a lesson to all those who doubted the words and deeds of the good Iraqi exiles whose fabricated information helped lead America to war.
