Yesterday, November 3, 2015, brother James called Marash Girl's attention to an article Michael Rubin published yesterday in Commentary, the article entitled "Mourning Ahmad Chalabi".
Rubin writes, "Ahmad Chalabi died of a heart attack this morning at his home in Baghdad. Many things are written about Chalabi, few of which are positive and many of which depict him as a cartoon villain. Chalabi was both brilliant and arrogant, but he was less villain than scapegoat. And he was first and foremost an Iraqi patriot." "I first met Chalabi in the summer of 2001," writes Rubin, as he goes on to talk about the man as he knew him.
