The Velvet Hammer strikes again...

Good story. I''ve always been fond of Baker.

PS - Fix the damn link.

I''m still trying to understand how the awarding of U.S. tax dollars to our coallition allies has anything to do with whether france, germany, or russia go spend their tax dollars on Iraq. they''re welcome to do so.

I''m damned surprised that anyone, Baker or whoever, got France and Germany to this level of cooperation days after we told them ""no u.s. dollars for you."" That''s amazing.
