From Tom Toles.
Actually, he is postponing finding a resolution because that's his job for his second term. His job in the first term was to get us into as many wars as possible, and then get reselected. His job now is simply to keep those wars, and their associated gravy trains, going for as long as possible. Wait until Saddam is caught. Wait until the handover of sovereignty. Wait until the Iraqi elections. Wait until the new constitution. Wait until the second Iraqi elections. Wait until our elections. Wait for the Baker cabal to report. Wait until after Christmas. Wait for a blue moon. The money keeps flowing from China to Halliburton (with the huge bill eventually coming to us or the next generation) as long as he keeps the wars going. That's his job.
In case you were wondering, he's not working for us.
