"I am America's best friend?"

Iraqi police backed by American soldiers on Thursday raided the home and offices of the controversial figure who provided the Bush administration with prewar intelligence on supposed weapons of mass destruction in Iraq (news - web sites), including the now-discredited information about mobile labs whose true use is still a matter of debate.
Chalabi's contacts with Iran have left some in the government suspicious about his intentions. Chalabi has denied allegations that he handed over sensitive information to Iran about the U.S. occupation in Iraq. t's unclear why Chalabi's home was raided Thursday. A senior coalition official said an Iraqi judge had issued several warrants, and details would be released later. Coalition Provisional Authority spokesman Dan Senor said Chalabi and his group were not the targets.

But we all know don't we? We finally got this smug bastard.
