Ahmad Chalabi, the Iraqi who helped spur the U.S. invasion of his country, could play a role in seeing Iraq exit its current crisis although close ties he established with Iran pose an impediment, according to Paul Wolfowitz, a top American national security official when the war began.Chalabi's Iraqi National Congress supplied Wolfowitz and others in President George W. Bush's administration with information that tied then-Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to Al-Qaeda and alleged he was developing weapons of mass destruction, the justification for the U.S. invasion in March 2003 .With ISIS-led militants controlling swaths of Iraq and threatening to extend their gains, Wolfowitz said the U.S. should "at least arm" moderate insurgents in Syria who have been battling ISIS fighters in that country.
