When Scumbags Fight

The Washington Post has a more thorough description of the U.S. raid on Chalabi's house and offices this morning, and they offer a bit of an explanation:
The raids appeared to complete Chalabi's remarkable fall from grace in Washington over the last difficult year of U.S. occupation in Iraq. INC officials said the operation was U.S. retribution against Chalabi for his increasingly strident criticism of the American management of post-war Iraq.
And the New York Times offers this quote
"Bremer," said one Chalabi aide, "has lost his mind."
and this photo:

While probably a far worse person by any scale than Paul O'Neill, Joseph Wilson, or Richard Clarke, Chalabi is receiving the same Bushie wrath they deal out to those who turn against them.
