What will Christopher Hitchens say?

Iraqi courts, according to CNN, have issued an arrest warrant for Ahmed Chalabi, former darling of the neo-conservatives and Christopher Hitchen's mate, on suspicion on counterfeiting. Even more concerning they have issued an arrest warrant for Salem Chalabi, who is in charge of Saddam Hussein's trial, on suspicion of murder.

Is this true? Anything out of Iraq has to be viewed as suspect until proven a thousand times. But as that great Sun journalist might have said (if it was over something like a proposal to give money to poor children's parents, admittedly), 'you couldn't make it up'.
