If I would have known that the US would not take IRaqi oil to repay the treasury for Iraq's liberation, I would never have supported the war in the first place! We were told that Iraqi oil would help pay for the war. Sheesh!

The Arabs only believe what they WANT to believe, which has nothing to do with the truth.

Hi Leonard,

I know this is out of left field but I was wondering if you could ask your guest about the plight of homosexuals in Iraq. Have measures been taken to protect them in our absence?
