The DaBremer Code
Mystery fans rejoice! Paul Bremer’s hot new fiction, “My Year in Iraq: The Struggle to Build a Future of Hope” comes out next week, and we may actually find out what happened to the missing $9 (count’em) $9 billion dollars.
Whodunnit? When it comes to the junior overachievers at the CPA the question should be, “who didn’t do it?” Just look for a few budding neocons with solid platinum Blackberrys.
Bonus: According to Bremer, the insurgency was a surprise.
Paul Bremer, who led the U.S. civilian occupation authority in Iraq after the 2003 invasion, has admitted the United States did not anticipate the insurgency in the country, NBC Television said on Friday.
Bremer, interviewed by the network in connection with release of his book on Iraq, recounted the decision to disband the Iraqi army quickly after arriving in Baghdad, a move many experts consider a major miscalculation.
When asked who was to blame for the subsequent Iraqi rebellion, in which thousands of Iraqis and Americans have died, Bremer said “we really didn’t see the insurgency coming,” the network said in a news release.
And they say that Doug Feith is stupid…
