Rebuilding Iraq

The NYT deigns to publish a slight lifting of the veil concerning the massive corruption that occurred during the early, fun times in Iraq. This topic has been mostly ignored up until now, so as usual at Blog Simple we ask the question, why now?

We've tried to follow this story since when only Guillermo Contreras of the humble San Antonio Express News was on the beat, and noted the deafening silence in the midst of an election campaign. God knows the NYT doesn't want their reporting to interfere with the election cycle, as usual.

Where the investigation might lead is anyone's guess. The top ranking officers targeted in the investigation are colonels as far as we know, the generals are still out of the loop. Suspicious minds, ours amongst them, wonder if pressure is being applied to some of our prominent and powerful officers.
