That was the entire impetus and the eventual failure of the Oil for Food programs. You cannot guarantee proper use of financial aide when Terrorist or Totalitarian factions control the government. Does that sound like President Bush? I?m not quite sure, although I do wish he?d simply increase troop-levels and take the gloves off with the insurgents and Iran. For instance, why is Al Sadr still alive? We should have deported him to Guantanamo in 2003, tried him as an enemy combatant, and have him quietly executed November 5, 2008. If he is imprisoned in extremis for a long-period of time he becomes a failed insurgent, not a honorific terrorist martyr. Simply get it done, fast.
