Transparency International on the Case

We went in with too few auditors, but maybe it is not too late for an international Coalition of the Billing to sort this out. By the hour.

Well, even if Mr. Klein is right and a relatively honest democratic government is not a realistic goal for Iraq, it hardly follows that immediate US withdrawal is the only logical alternative. Perhaps we can reasonably aspire to a stable but corrupt government where the Sunnis and Shiites bribe each other rather than shoot each other. And the good news is, Mr. Klein can still declare this to be a defeat!
