The Bush Administration: Honestly What is Left to Fuckup? Are we going to accidently drop the big one on London? On Monday evening, the Chimperor will deign us with an appearance from the White House balcony where with the blessings of God-on-High, he will announce his plan for the "Iraqi Quislings". Will it work? Why look at the track you really like the odds? Here's another reason to trust them to make the wrong decision.
The raid by Iraqi police and U.S. agents of the home and political headquarters of controversial politician Ahmed Chalabi seems to mark the dramatic downfall of the man who has long been Washington's closest ally in Iraq. But Chalabi's days in power may not be over. During the past year, he has amassed a large web of influence and control that stretches from the oil industry to the banking system to the purges of former members of Saddam Hussein's Baath Party. ... After the fall of Hussein's regime, Chalabi and his U.S.-trained militia swept into Iraq aboard American military planes. He was quickly given status as Washington's favorite, and he was widely expected to become Iraq's first post-Hussein president. He was given control of the entire archive of the Hussein regime's secret documents, as well as the so-called de-Baathification process. The powers of the De-Baathification Commission, which Chalabi chairs, are so wide-ranging that it is often called a government within the government.
There's more of course. There are always more clusterfucks with these morons. By the way...thanks to commenter Smarty Jones...look at the supreme countenance of the man as attends a college graduation ceremony, Groucho was more academic as Prof. Quincy Adams Wagstaff in Horse Feathers.
