Business in the new Iraq

Brian Whitaker at the Guardian has a column on the way business in the new Iraq is likely to go.

Hint: The family of certain bank-embezzling Iraqi fraudster is involved, as is an official at the Pentagon.

Excursus: The appellation "dog" was commonly used by both rulers and subordinates in the ancient Near East world to describe a lower-ranking official or servant. It was a term which highlighted the faithfulness of underlings to their masters. Thus, we often see inscriptions or letters whose beginning/salutation take the form "PN, your dog, would like the king to know", or "PN, my dog, joined my military campaign".

What I want to know is, whose dog is Chalabi?
