Meanwhile...back in Bagdad

moneyspin.gifIt just gets better, don't it?

"The US flew nearly $12bn in shrink-wrapped $100 bills into Iraq, then distributed the cash with no proper control over who was receiving it and how it was being spent."

Billions. Could it be that the Bush Administration will go down in history as the biggest Bozo bunch of all time?

"The staggering scale of the biggest transfer of cash in the history of the Federal Reserve has been graphically laid bare by a US congressional committee.

In the year after the invasion of Iraq in 2003 nearly 281 million notes, weighing 363 tonnes, were sent from New York to Baghdad for disbursement to Iraqi ministries and US contractors. Using C-130 planes, the deliveries took place once or twice a month with the biggest of $2,401,600,000 on June 22 2004, six days before the handover."

And then these morons admit that some of this $12Billion (if not all) could have been used to finance the so-called insurgency.

Jesus H. Christ! What is it gonna take for the American people to say Enough is Fucking enough! Bush out now! And put him and Blair on trial while you're at it for Crimes Against Humanity.

$12 Billion - all down the gurgler Rex. And you wondered where the "insurgents" were getting the money? It would be laughable if it weren't so tragic.

It's really sad that it came to that. I've never seen any revolt happen in the U.S where the govt was overthrown by the people. It happens in other countries all the time when the people get sick of their stupid governments.

But it won't happen in the U.S because unfortunately most people just don't care. You know why? because they enjoy their relaxed taken for granted lifestyles.

Don't mean to hurt anybody's feelings here.
