    As Proconsul Bremer scuttles home like a rat, Dubbyuh heaps praise upon him for his incompetence. All he did was follow his marching orders. Hand Iraq over to the Iraqi's on (or before) June 30th..whether it's ready or not.

    The GAO report on his tenure shows that electrical generating capacity is at, and in some cases below, what it was at the begining of the occupation. Iraqi security forces, that were suppossed to be trained by the CPA, were largely ineffective and sometimes deserted their posts. Also, it found that the Proconsul failed to adequately staff the CPA, which was at about 30% below optimal levels.

    The CPA's own inspector general found that the Proconsul's agency also failef to adequately supervise the some $9 billion in international aid that flowed through its accounts, resulting in millions of dollars in cost over-runs, and some funds completely unaccounted for.

    Yes indeed boys and girls...Proconsul Bremer's occupation of Iraq was a smashing success. We'll see how long this house of cards stands.
