NINE HUNDRED FUCKING MILLION DOLLARS.
In other news, David Kaye thinks the Bush administration is a bunch of smacked ass losers wallowing in abject denial:
WASHINGTON (AFP) - President George W. Bush's administration is in denial over the lack of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq before the US-led invasion in 2003, ex-chief US arms inspector David Kay said.Tip of the hat to Bradford Child for the pointer to this story. I also understand Scott Ritter (former UN Weapons Inspector; subsequently personally smeared and destroyed by the fascist wing of the neocon movement) was on CNN tonight telling Wolf Blitzkrieg, "Neener. Neener. Neener." Back to you, Wolf.
... The White House has insisted Saddam was a threat to the United States and had weapons of mass destruction capability, but Kay told NBC television: "All I can say is 'denial' is not just a river in Egypt."
"The report is scary enough without misrepresenting what it says," he added.
...Kay told CNN television "Right now we have a lot of people who are desperate to justify the Bush administration's decision to go to war with Iraq.
... "He had a lot of intent. He didn't have capabilities. Intent without capabilities is not an imminent threat."
