What Are We Fighting For?

Via Atrios, CNN is reporting:
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- A man sentenced to death in Kuwait for the 1983 bombings of the U.S. and French embassies now sits in Iraq's parliament as a member of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's ruling coalition, according to U.S. military intelligence.

Jamal Jafaar Mohammed's seat in parliament gives him immunity from prosecution. Washington says he supports Shiite insurgents and acts as an Iranian agent in Iraq.

U.S. military intelligence in Iraq has approached al-Maliki's government with the allegations against Jamal Jafaar Mohammed, whom it says assists Iranian special forces in Iraq as "a conduit for weapons and political influence."
Iraq is the Central Front of the War on Terror, huh? This is even better than having an Iranian Spy sit with our First Lady at the State of the Union.

Sure, lets give him a valintine. Then we'll know where he is to put a bullet in his head. Just kidding, or am I? I think my point is there, even if you try to diminish it with sarcasm.
