Brian Todd on the political future of Ahmed Chalabi

On Tuesday evening CNN's Brian Todd tackled the complicated climate that is the political landscape of the Middle East, asking in part whether Ahmed Chalabi will be Iraq's next leader, and in particular whether such a scenario would be a positive development.

With a history of influence over high ranking U.S. leaders, Chalabi has been a divisive figure for years. Now some are calling for him to become Iraq's next prime minister.

Watch the above video, as Todd details Chalabi's checkered past, as well as his role in U.S. foreign policy.
