    I will certainly be very interested to see if Bush and Cheney become directors of an oil services or an export/import company which has lucrative contracts in Iraq. :yuck: But I will not be surprised. :grumpy: :mad:

    That is not nesesary, they can place a friend or a relative. It's a common practice found in corrupt politicians.

    Cute, indeed. Could someone remind me why Palast can't get a job even for a liberal media outlet in the US? I seem to have forgotten...

    edit: Oh wait, I remember now: Greg Palast was driven out of American media because he is a liar. A fraud. A traitor. That "quote" - "Operation Iraqi Liberation" - where exactly did that come from....? I'd like to see a government source that uses that phrase. Oh, right - it was actually called "Operation Iraqi Freedom" - but frauds like Palast changed it for their own fraudulent purposes.

    I'll never understand why Palast isn't sharing a jail cell with Jane Fonda. Both are guilty of treason.

    Hey, at least he's making a falsifiable claim. If Iraq's oil industry is not nationalized and does not produce at or under the OPEC cap, then he either lied or had false information.

    i'm not sure; you'd have to ask him. i suspect that none of the "liberal" media outlets in the US would touch this story. i think palast wrote that in his book "the best democracy money can buy". careerism & obedience to the govt is what the media in the US is all about.

    again, you can email him & ask him where he found that out. i don't know how he's a liar/fraud since he can back up everything he says. example: that station dan rather worked for (cbs?)

    :rofl: is it treason to speak the truth & to expose lies?
