Terrorist Holds Iraqi Government Job

If we are so worried about terrorists, why would we allow them to be appointed to government positions in Iraq?

(CNN) A man sentenced to death in Kuwait for the 1983 bombings of the U.S. and French embassies now sits in Iraq's parliament as a member of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's ruling coalition, according to U.S. military intelligence.

Jamal Jafaar Mohammed's seat in parliament gives him immunity from prosecution. Washington says he supports Shiite insurgents and acts as an Iranian agent in Iraq.
Maliki says if presented with proof, he will strip Mohammed's status, as if somehow he didn't know this already.
