Raq, the new Nam


Condi Rice's note to Bush on Iraq power transfer, with Bush comment.

One way to deal with political spin is just to write down everything that has been said about a subject side by side with everything else and see what kind of a pretty picture it makes for the reader. "What I heard about Iraq in 2005" does that.

A few quotes with links below. Hover your cursor over to find out who said what:

I like the spin "promoting democracy". What's the difference between what is going on in Gitmo and what happened under Saddam - except degree of oppression? How can we keep people months on end - without even a hearing? How can we spy on dissenters in our own country and keep a straight face when we avow to "promote liberal reforms on a global scale"?
