Oil money for the Iraqi people

+ More

Tamara Chalabi has written an article urging that oil profits should be distributed to the Iraqi people. Chalabi is described on the website as an independent scholar in London. She's the daughter of Ahmed Chalabi, the often vilified head of the Iraqi National Congress and now cabinet minister in the Iraqi government. Chalabi played a part in putting Section 109, declaring oil the property of the Iraqi people, into the Iraqi constitution. I think people should stop vilifying him and start regarding him as a farsighted statesman.
