Slain Iraqi cleric said to be CIA ally
'The United States suffered a major blow in its campaign to recruit friendly Shiite clerics inside Iraq last month when it lost an influential religious ally to an angry mob — and as much as $13 million the CIA had given him to cultivate supporters... Witnesses to the slaying said that as al-Khoei was being stabbed, a number of U.S. $100 and $50 bills spilled out of his clerical robes.'

This is an all time CIA classic..
