Nouri al-Maliki lunching at Le-Bec Fin (Updated, cause it wasn't him)

Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is lunching at Le-Bec Fin (1523 Walnut) while passing through town on his way from Washington to New York. Outside Georges Perrier’s culinary landmark are state trooper cars, several black SUVs and more than a dozen security-types milling about with earpieces and more guards inside the restaurant.

UPDATE: Security was so good that our spies misidentified the Iraqi dignitary lunching at Le-Bec Fin. It was Iraq President Jalal Talabani, not al-Maliki (pictured) who ate at the restaurant while an army of security was outside.
