How Bush Picked the Dumbest People for Iraq

Did you vote for Bush in 2004? Do you support Bush's war on terror? Do you favor overturning Roe v. Wade?

If you answered yes to all those questions, you're probably not very bright, but you would have made the A list for a Green Zone appointment to rebuild Iraq. Here are some candidates who answered successfully:

A 24-year-old who had never worked in finance -- but had applied for a White House job -- was sent to reopen Baghdad's stock exchange. The daughter of a prominent neoconservative commentator and a recent graduate from an evangelical university for home-schooled children were tapped to manage Iraq's $13 billion budget, even though they didn't have a background in accounting.

Check the Washington Post for an analysis of how the Bushies blew the Iraq reconstruction, turned the country into a terrorist training camp and lost $9 billion in the process.
