The NYT on how the Shrub Regime made off with far more than Madoff
It's an op-ed piece by Frank Rich, replete with interesting links and a straight-on look at what we have allowed to happen in our nation. The reconstruction of Iraq cost $117 billion that went....where? Into Cheney's pocket? A few others must have gotten rich too. I was a stockholder in Haliburton for a while, and kick myself sometimes for getting out. It just seemed so immoral to keep making money off the taxpayers. Madoff only made off with $50 billion, and it was investor money, not taxpayer money.
