    "You're doing a heck of a job, Cattanie!" What on earth were they thinking?

    The article is quite long, but definitely worth reading through. Staggering naïveté.

    They have a habit of befriending & rewarding fraudsters - remember Ahmad Chalabi !?

    Hey, it's made it to the American press now! Didn't the British press have this story about a month ago?

    Incompetent management with no oversight by the Bush administration leading to massive fraud and waste? I'm shocked. Absolutely stunned. Couldn't have imagined it.

    And to think these guys like to campaign on fiscal responsibility! Rubbish.

    Ha! I've got you reading the LA Times now. I just finished reading that article in print edition.

    You gotta admit that Bush has been totally honest about installing a government in Iraq just like his.

    garbage in, garbage out...

    Well of course he'd enjoy it; it's a total leftist rag, didn't you know?

    Isn't there a hammer and sickle on the masthead?
    :p

    Now Michelle Malkin... there's an unbiased journalist.

    Ha. I was amused to think of skunk posting this article to the forum in the UK even as I was reading it in the newspaper at my breakfast table in California. Technology, it can be so... confusing!

    Ah, but I read it at least 8 hours before you did. How confusing is that?

    Ever see "Casino Royale"? I believe it was Ursula Andress who told Peter Sellers about an article she'd read in the paper, when Sellers suddenly notes, "But it's very early. Surely the paper isn't out yet." "I get them before they're printed," she coos, to which Sellers replies, "Well, I suppose if you have money you can do anything."
