WH Communications Director: More Aid Key to Iraq solution
http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/IraqCoverage/story?id=2599801

<snip>

Dan Bartlett, the White House communications director, told ABC News today that "incentives" were key to getting Iraq on the path to self-governance, and he indicated those could be monetary incentives.

"Well, in some situations, we do have a lot of reconstruction funds, for example," Bartlett said today on "Good Morning America."

"If you have a solid political structure in place and a security climate, that way you can have money go into there. … There are a lot of ways to move them along the path, and that's something we're working on."

Later this morning, White House spokesman Tony Snow seemed to contradict Bartlett and shot down talk of monetary incentives.

OMG these people are delusional as well as disorganized. I'm being kind with that assessment.

1. Yes - keep sending trunks of money into a black hole.

Great policy statement. Has anyone told this moron that the Iraqis lose our trunks full of money faster than we can send them?

3. Why? So another $800 million can go missing?
And turn up in real estate in other countries?

5. 'Borrow and Bait'... Rogue Nation Building GOPers!
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 04:14 PM by Hubert Flottz
They think OUR money, grows on trees...do they plan on collecting income taxes, off of the folks in China and India who now have our production jobs, or what?

The wealthy GOP bosses don't want to pay their share of their taxes, but they want to borrow more money from the Saudis and Red China, to then turn around and dump that cash down the drain in a war they now admit is unwinnable. SELLING OUT OUR NATIONAL SECURITY, in Iraq!
