    Scapegoats...plenty of those coming out of Abu Ghraib. Just some grunts taking it in the neck for the sins of their leaders.

    Bully you are losing it, (how many times have I written that?) What does the one have to do with the other? Are you moonlighting writing copy for Reuters? I'm getting whiplash here! :eek2:

    The Bush Administraiton has been seeking a means to oust Annan ever since he first spoke in opposition to the war in Iraq, and especially since he named it for what it is...an illegal war.

    Wheels within wheels dear lady...It's all tied in to the Administration's Iraq policy.

    Oh, and don't forget...The New York Post is a Rupert Murdoch paper...He's a loyal Fan O' Dubbyuh

    On your last point Bully, 'so what?' If it's not true, trust me, THAT would get reported!

    What happened in that prison was wrong, but the military was investigating and charging those involved long before it became a story because of pics. You know it, I know it, you just want to bash Bush.

    So Bully, you think the whole Oil-for-Food scandal is a cover-up? A diversion? What?

    It is indeed a diversion. It is diverting attention from the involvement of US oil companies, including <a href=http://www.corpwatch.org/article.php?id=11569>Exxon, Chevron, El Paso</a> and BayOil, all of which either recieved oil-vouchers from Saddam's regime. Or, as in <a href=http://www.corpwatch.org/article.php?id=11569>BayOil's</a> case was found to have helped Russian politcians make a fast buck from the Oil-For-Food Program.

    And let's not forget the $8.9 billion that vanished down the rabbit-hole while J. Paul Bremmer was doing his stint as Pro-Consul in Iraq. The UN Oil-For-Food scandal is a drop in the bucket by comparison, so why isn't that being pursued with equal zeal by Congressional invesitgators or the "Main Stream Media"...Hmmm?
