There was no "ghost" premier who oversaw this huge scam, but one of flesh and blood, named Nouri al-Maliki.The pathetic part of the story is that Maliki was rewarded by being appointed deputy prime minister, instead of being subjected to a serious judicial investigation.Maliki is now in Beirut, at the head of a 100-plus-member delegation, presumably spending the Iraqi people's money as he discusses the worrying situation in his country – and visits a Hezbollah tourism site, and catches up on current events with former premier Salim al-Hoss.
