Feinstein's Special Interests

Could this be why Senator Feinstein was behind the president's decision to invade Iraq?

Seems as though her husband has his grimey fingers in a contract to rebuild some of Iraq's infrastructure that our own government destroyed.

Isn't it ironic how this works? We invade a country. We destroy its critical infrastructure. We torture its people. We award private American companies contracts to rebuild what we destroyed.

Rinse and repeat.

Meanwhile, what was accomplished? Seems as though this is a new public works program, like in FDR's New Deal, the only difference being that poor and/or unemployed people aren't being put to work. Rather, big bidness is.

SOP for the Bushies. They have perverted a government program designed to assist the disadvantaged to the overly advantaged "base" (ie, major corporations and cronies).

Well done.
