Comments: No Evidence For Administration's Claim On U.S.-Iraqi Declaration Of Principles

Bush will do whatever he wants is the short of it. I liked the part about protecting Iraq and upholding their constitution (?) LOL. I expect we shall have to attack ourselves in order to keep to the bargin. I arrest myself in the name of the law, come out with your hands up.

With respect to the translation claim, surely Bush didn't read the Arabic original - so either he (a) signed a document he hadn't read, or (b) he read an English translation. Did he, then, use a separate translation that hasn't been made available? Or was his signing of the document based on a translation that, according to the unnamed official, was sloppy and inaccurate?

Excellent article, but why do you hate our permanent bases so much that you'd deprive them the security they desperately need? Besides, KBR employees that don't pay social security need employment too. And mercenaries; woe be to them if we ever had to pull up stakes and they had to get real, not-killing-some-bystander jobs.

i really like the idea that iraqis are writing laws that americans are willing to sign, even more than i like the idea of the iraqi parliament somehow magically closing its eyes and signing whatever paper happens to appear in front of them.

Yeah, yeah, but won't those Iraqis be surprised when Bush whips out some of those ever-useful signing statements? Why should the fun be limited to just the USA? Bush - Corn holing polities on two continents!
