There's no other way to put this: George Bush is sacrificing our troops so that corrupt Iraqi politicians can line their pockets with gold at the expense of the Iraqi people. NBC News is exposing this monumental scandal:
Desperate shortages of drugs and medical supplies in Baghdad's overcrowded hospitals are confronting the victims of violence. But the shortages are not because of a lack of money.
Medicines and supplies have been siphoned off and sold elsewhere because of corruption in the Iraqi government's Ministry of Health, according to a draft U.S. government report obtained by NBC News.
The report, written by U.S. advisers to Iraq's anti-corruption agency, analyzes corruption in 12 ministries and finds devastating and grim problems: "Corruption protected by senior members of the Iraqi government," the report said, "remains untouchable."
One potential problem, according to the report, is in the office of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
The report said that "the prime minister's office has on a number of occasions intervened on cases involving political supporters."
The wheels are starting to come off of Bush's disastrous train wreck in Iraq. The American people have had enough of the incompetent group of miserably corrupt and self-serving Iraqi politicians who are able to loot the Iraqi treasury thanks to the tremendous sacrifices that our heroes in arms are making on a daily basis to keep them in power. Every American should be outraged by this absurd and ridiculous travesty. The Iraqis don't understand democracy, haven't earned it, won't fight for it and certainly don't deserve it. We've done all we can do for them; it's time for them to stand on their own.
