It is high quality journalism, however there is much more to this story, not that the Nation hasn't been vigilant about all of the events and controversies that have led to this sad state of affairs. I place more blame on the Senate & House for rushing headlong into this fiasco and on people such as Limbaugh & all the media that could have seen that moving into Iraq, lock, stock and barrel would create a free-for-all.

Rumsfeld, Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rice, Bush, etc. are the real criminals here. The gung ho Republicans & some Democrats that went along with an illegal & immoral invasion knowing that exploitation and graft couldn't possibly be avoided should also pay a price for their cynical & irresponsible politics. Our soldiers were going to die one way or another when we allowed the chicken hawks to push us into an occupation & when money became the primary force motivating private companies to take over military functions. We no longer have a democracy or a media that work as they must to avoid scandals & disasters such as these.
