Chalabi Back, Still Chance Judy Miller Will Win Pulitzer

It was just a joke two weeks ago, but now no one is laughing:  Chalabi, the man with "nine lives," really is "back" as a Iraq force, Damien Cave writes.
At first championed by the Bush administration’s neoconservatives potential leader of Iraq, Ahmad Chalabi ended up persona non grata, effectively barred from the wartime American Embassy here. Now, in an improbable twist of fate, Mr. Chalabi is being talked about as a serious candidate for prime minister. He has also been back to the embassy.
With Sunni insurgents rampaging across the country and sectarian killings on the rise, everything old seems new again in Iraq — including, apparently, Mr. Chalabi.
