Ahmed Chalabi is the leader of the Iraqi National Congress, which is part of the main Shia electoral slate, and was on the ballot in Sunday's election. NPR's Steve Inskeep speaks with Chalabi about the U.S. military's role, the future of Iraqi sovereignty and his standing with the Pentagon. Chalabi fell out of favor with Washington last year after claims he passed intelligence information to Iran.
