Hard Work

Gates: Iraq political reform difficult - 2 Aug 2007 at 11:12am - ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates -- U.S. officials underestimated how difficult it would be for the Iraqi government to pass political reforms, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Thursday, adding that the "depth of mistrust" among the factions is greater than anticipated.
No kidding. Actually, Cheney, Bush, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, & Feith underestimated the difficulty, or, more likely, chose to ignore it. Is anyone else really that surprised?

Young Bush Staffer Gets Grilled - TIME - 2 Aug 2007 at 2:37pm - J. Scott Jennings, at the tender age of 29, became the latest sacrificial lamb the White House has sent up to answer questions about the controversial firings of eight US Attorneys last year.
But he didn't actually answer any questions -- he was just there to announce that he wouldn't be answering any questions, and to compare himself to Ulysses, or something like that.

Congress passes ethics reform bill - 2 Aug 2007 at 3:02pm - The Senate voted Thursday to make lawmakers disclose more about their efforts to fund pet projects and raise money from lobbyists, a move some called the biggest advance in congressional ethics in decades.

Bush raps Democrats on spending - 2 Aug 2007 at 2:40pm - WASHINGTON -- President Bush ridiculed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday -though not by name - for saying that the $22 billion that separates congressional Democrats from the White House on spending bills is a "very small difference."
The guy who's spending hundred$ of billion$ every year on a war to take non-existent weapons away from a dead man.

Thought for the day:
"Wars teach us not to love our enemies, but to hate our allies." -W. L. George
