A Frenchman involved in wrong doing? OMG

It just boggles the mind. One of Chirac’s buddies has been implicated in the Oil For Food scandal, that thing the Leftazoids wish would go away so that the US can hand over it’s security and military control to it.

A longtime ally of French President Jacques Chirac and a leading British critic of the Iraq war received huge contracts to resell Iraqi oil from Saddam Hussein under the U.N. oil-for-food program, Senate investigators have found.

In findings being released today, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs permanent subcommittee on investigations charges that former French Interior Minister Charles Pasqua and British Member of Parliament George Galloway each received the right to market more than 10 million barrels of cut-rate oil from dictator Saddam’s Oil Ministry between 1999 and 2003.

Well, that’s not so bad in and of itself, is it? Yes, it is, since it involved kick backs and outright bribes, lining Saddam’s pockets with essentially blood money. The money didn’t make it back to the people of Iraq in the form of food, medical supplies, aid, etc. And don’t forget, neither of these individuals owned a refinery. They were not supposed to be allowed to purchase the oil. Period.

Of course, both gentlemen are denying the allegations. Too bad those allegations come from Iraq Oil Ministry files, as well as depositions. One thing you can say about Saddam, the old bastard made sure people kept damm good records.

    The French? Evil? I’m sure you are mistaken. I’ve heard it’s Bush’s fault.

    “Both GENTLEMEN have denied the allegations” ? ? ?

    Gee, you’re in such a “polite” mood today…..I could think of quite a few replacement words….

    Alleged scoundrels
    Apparently criminal creeps
    Money-hungry moral rejects

    Oh, I do have some good ones I’m saving…. hopefully Bolton will get elected and he can use them for me!

  3. Well, I was a little tired. I blame Bush. 😉
