Isn't it obvious that this guy is getting a kickback from the sales of these B.S. rods? Maj. Gen. Jehad al-Jabiri, Esquire, is getting a percentage of every rod sold to the Iraqi government. This is why he has to endorse them! $10 bucks says he OKs every procurement of these rods personally.

His grandiose statements ("I know more about bombs than anyone in the world"), his reliance on personal opinion ("I don't care what Sandia, et al, say"), his inability to accept the facts in front of him ("you need more training"), and his position within the government make this an obvious conclusion. Which is why he is being investigated. I hope the Washington Post writes a follow-up when he bails out of Iraq with his immoral gains.

Just as you don't attribute to negligence what stupidity can easily explain, you don't attribute to stupidity was GREED can easily explain.

I don't honestly believe that if my choice McCain had won, anything would be any better. So what's it matter whether my vote was counted or not.

This is a major problem, but it is a separate issue. We can't have a healthy democracy without solving both of them. You can't tell me which needs to be solved first.

Healthy REPUBLIC! No wonder it's unhealthy, no one knows what they actually want...

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
