An arrest warrant has been issued for Ahmad Chalabi, by the new Iraqi Government. Chalabi served on the Governing Council of Iraq and was highly involved in the early stages of the war on Iraq, being on the American payroll. A warrant also issued for Chalabi's nephew, Salem Chalabi. Both men are accused of counterfeiting and deny the charges, calling them outlandish. Salem Chalabi is also accused of being involved in the murder of an Iraqi finance director.
The warrant was the latest strike against Ahmad Chalabi in his removal from the centers of power. A longtime Iraqi exile opposition leader, he had been a favorite of many in the Pentagon but fell out with the Americans in the weeks before the U.S. occupation ended in June.

Both men denied the charges, dismissing them as part of a political conspiracy against them and their family.

Ahmad Chalabi was somewhat marginalized when he was left out of the new interim government that took power June 28 but has since worked to reposition himself as a Shiite populist. At the helm of the war crimes tribunal for Saddam, the Ivy League-educated Salem Chalabi remains a central figure in Iraq.

Ahmad Chalabi is a man of questionable character and motives. While his motives in Iraq maybe questionable, counterfeiting Iraqi dinars doesn't seem to quite fit his agenda.

This man was accused by the Us military and government fro providing false war Intel and for giving Iran top secret US military info and being an Iranian Spy. No one screws the US military and gets away free. IMO this is a legal way for the US military to get custody of Chalabi then punish him. At the same time people think the Iraqi government has custody of him.
