Today in history: On September 20, 2002 Bush declared a new US security policy of pre-emptive war. War news for September 20, 2003 Bring ‘em on: Member of Governing Council shot in Baghdad ambush. L. Paul Bremer says he is “shocked” by assassination attempt against IGC member. Bremer doesn’t get out of the palace much. Bring ‘em on: Explosions, small arms fire in Fallujah as US troops begin security operation. Bring ‘em on: Roadside bomb detonates prematurely in Baghdad. Power remains unreliable in Baghdad. “The U.S.-led Coalition Provisional Authority running Iraq also recently hired 24,000 guards to watch over power lines and oil and water pipelines.” Cashing in: WorldCom/MCI, which donated $100,000 to Bush’s election campaign, received a $45 million no-bid Pentagon contract to build an iraqi cellular phone system. The company has no experience in building such a network and recently settled the largest financial fraud case in US history. Read this article to see how your $87 billion is being squandered by the Bush adminintration. Cashing in: Doug Feith’s law firm offers assistance to “regional construction and logistics firms to collaborate with contractors from the United States and other coalition countries in implementing infrastructure and other reconstruction projects in Iraq.” Cashing in: Halliburton's contracts in Iraq top $2 billion. Family advocacy group launches television ad campaign against Halliburton’s sweetheart deals. A “family” organization with money that isn’t a Gooper mouthpiece? Now I'm shocked! The real numbers on Bush’s shabby "coalition." Private security is a growth industry growing in Iraq. Bush’s battleship mouth scores direct hit on his rowboat ass.
