Oooh! Oooh! Oil-for-Food Guy Resigns!
This is of course being pimped by FOX, which is why I'm giving you the BBC link instead. (That, and the fact that the Beeb's including some little facts that FOX is leaving out.) Speaking of Oil-for-Food violations, the BBC has also reported -- in a story that was largely ignored by the US media -- that the US looked the other way when Saddam was smuggling $8 billion or so worth of oil out of Iraq. (The story makes references to accusations hurled against George Galloway, but doesn't mention that these accusations were based on forged documents.) And of course the first indictments to be handed down were against the key officers of a Houston, Texas company called Bayoil -- which has been a big contributor to the GOP over the past twenty years.
