The Projects

"We have scaled back our projects in many
areas," James Jeffrey, a senior advisor on Iraq
for the State Department, told lawmakers at a
hearing of the House Appropriations subcommittee
on foreign operations. "We do not have the money."

More than two years after Congress approved
funding for the rebuilding effort, electricity
and oil production in Iraq are at or below prewar
levels; and unemployment remains high. Less than
half of the U.S. reconstruction money has been
spent, but in some sectors, such as electricity
and water, security costs have eaten up much of
the budget.

Many say Amurika went to Iraq for their oil.

My gracious. Yet another fuck up.

How should I put it?

To hell with it.

Draw your own Bigger Picture.

If you can't, it really doesn't matter. Just go
along for the ride. It'll be spectacular.
