Ajami bragging: "He has been granted a rare audience with the Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, Iraq's supreme Shia cleric. He counts among his friends Iraqi prime ministers and cabinet ministers." Yes, his friend Ahmad Chalabi took him to say hi to Sistani, and he is friends with Chalabi and Allawi, and US commander in Baghdad recently arranged for him to meet with Maliki. What an honor. What an honor. I mean the folks at the American Task Force on Palestine have met with Muhammad Dahlan, no less, but do you see them bragging? (thanks Amer)
