Letter to the Editor
I continue to watch in amazement while the Bush Administration takes the public position that the Iraq reconstruction contracts will go only to those countries who supported the Iraq War, and not to Germany, France, Russia, and Canada who opposed it. And this is at the same time America is asking them to donate money and troops. America is going out of its way to insult those countries who they are also begging from.
Besides – those countries aren’t going to get the contracts anyway. Neither are the countries who did support the war. All the contracts are being given to American companies, like Halliburton, who gave big campaign contributions to get Bush elected in the first place. Only Republican party insiders get government contracts. And I’m sure that France, Germany, Russia, and Canada already know that.
It’s been 821 days since 9-11. Bin Laden is still free – are you?
