UPDATE: This guy’s Twitter claims the Post removed from its website this 2003 Sally Quinn profile of Chalabi, in which he is described as “polarizing” and “not a team player” (in much the way of Elizabeth Warren and Michelle Rhee!).
I gotta hand it to this guy. Could he have timed a comeback tour any better? The “Atlantic Ideas forum” is the kind of place where Tim Geithner gets asked such probing adversarial questions as “So, what do you think is the most important thing your team has gotten right?” Sally Quinn is…possibly the most ridiculous person to have never starred in a reality show. And honestly, what does anyone really want to say to Ahmed Chalabi at this point beyond, “Dude, you sure got some bad press for a guy who doesn’t even seem to be a heroin addict…”
