The Republican Guard

Apparently, "loyalty to the President" and ties to the far right wing of the GOP trumped competence, training or experience in the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA), the notoriously inept bureacracy that "governed" Iraq before being abruptly dissolved in June 2004. Twenty-somethings literally got their first jobs restarting the Baghdad stock market or managing the country's $13 billion budget, based soley on political connections. Once again, George W. Bush's paranoid obsession with loyalty leads to disaster. Not to worry, though; we're building a really big moat around Baghdad to keep the evildoers out. Someone needs call Tom Tancredo.
