Bush says fraud not possible in Iraq or Afghanistan

So forget about the billions that have gone missing, even though they were US tax dollars. (You know, the tax dollars that Bush and the GOP like to tell you is yours.) It’s just as though it never happened if the contract fraud occurs overseas. No matter how corrupt or how mismanaged, Bush says it’s all OK in the name of spreading democracy or whatever that’s supposed to be over there. Clearly we lost billions after Katrina due to mismanagement but Iraq has been a black hole, littered with charges of corruption, fraud, rape, theft, murder, you name it. This is what Bush and the GOP want to condone, as if none of it ever happened.

And to think people around the world think Bush and his talk of freedom and democracy sounds so fraudulent. That would be because it is.
