    Unpaid policemen in Najaf in January:

    Those cases seem to have been the result of bureaucratic turf wars (i.e., the militia's patron falling out of favor); I don't know if that's the situation here, or if it's a genuine cash crunch.

    Hard to be surprised about missing money when Chalabi is in the vicinity, but that would be fast work even for him.
