Interesting. The most fascinating thing is the fact that Iraqis just assumed he had authority because he acted like he did. Consider it a lesson in the ephemeral nature of power. But don't be decieved, the Americans are clearly firmly in charge in Baghdad, a fact they have just demonstrated quite effectively. This seems to be a serious blow to the INC, this guy looked like their ticket into some real power in Iraq and he just got tossed in the slammer--although I doubt he'll stay there long--by their own erstwhile sponsors. We'll see what happens with Chalabi and company from here, but I think they just lost a round.
