War - Iraq

Weren't Bush and the rest of his war dogs recently howling about the great success of the Anbar model, wherein they had armed and trained Sunni militias in that city, who were now working cheek-by-jowl with their American counterparts to stop Al Qaeda?

From Abu Aardvark comes this story about those victories:
Sitar Abu Risha, head of the Anbar Salvation Council, has allegedly fled Iraq with $75 million that the Americans had given him to fight al-Qaeda
This makes total sense to me, of course. Abu Risha has probably never had his hands on so much money in his entire life, and never will again. Anyone with a grain of sense and no morals would do exactly what he did - keep the cash and flee the hellhole that Iraq has become.

I despair of our leaders.
