Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Prior Planning Prevents Piss-Poor Performance

Thank to The Memory Hole. In October, 2001, the State Department's Future of Iraq Project gathered Iraqi exiles and international experts to plan a post-Saddam future for that nation. They completed their work in March/April of 2003 and their findings were promptly classified and then ignored by the Administration. Among other things, the Project foresaw widespread looting immediately after the invasion and warned of the dangers of disbanding the Iraqi Army. Yet more proof of this Administration's pig-headedness and willful ignorance.
