A must read
Here is a must read. My man Matt Taibbi wrote a long expose on war profiteering in Iraq. The most shocking part is that whistle blowers were demoted and "witnesses were afraid to testify in an effort to recover government funds because they feared reprisal from the government." Can you imagine, the government didn't want witnesses to expose fraud and get the money back to the government because it makes the Bush Administration look bad. $9 trillion in the hole and counting. The whole thing is revolting, and it is a clear expose on the true purpose for Bush's refusal to leave Iraq. Leaving Iraq makes it harder to give away $12 billion a month to friends, which is the true purpose of modern government, giving away money to large, influential corporations whether it is more useful HPV vaccines, or just plain war profiteering described in this piece. Chomsky covers all this as well. The system is so (rhymes with ducked) for normal people.
