McCain’s Cronies: Charlie Black’s Chalabi Chickens? Meet Roost.

Most irony-laden tea leaf reading this week goes to Ahmed Chalibi:

…Ahmed Chalabi was key in Maliki’s decision to rather ostentatiously endorse Barack Obama’s Iraq withdrawal time-line.

Thats right. The man (YouTube) who threw us Curveball, who would have given Dick Cheney lap dances if it got us to invade Iraq, feeder of ripe nuggets to Judy Miller, was key to the Iraqi support for Obama.

It is to laugh.

Especially given Chalabi’s long-standing and lucrative relationship with McCain adviser, uber-lobbyist Charlie Black.

Chickens? Meet roost.
