NBC has a new story out this evening which reports that members of the Iraqi National Congress in Iraq are currently being investigated by the Iraqi police for abduction, robbery, “stealing 11 Iraqi government vehicles” and “assaulting police by firing on them during a search”.
These stories have been around for some time (in addition to accusations of car-jacking), though I think this is the first time I’ve seen them reported — at least in a mainstream publication.
One more detail I hadn’t heard thus far is that, according to NBC, an arrest warrant has been issued for the INC’s chief of intelligence. My question is why there’s no American arrest warrant for the INC’s chief of intelligence.
But I guess that’s another story.
We’ll have more on Chalabi tomorrow and his ongoing tussle with the King Abdullah of Jordan, including some interesting stuff on wire intercepts.
