04/22/2003 Entry: "Land for Sale, Cheap"

"The Pentagon has no interest in keeping U.S. military forces in Iraq longer than it takes to stabilize the country, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said Monday.

Rumsfeld denied a news report that the United States was planning a long-term military relationship with Iraq that would grant American access to air bases in Baghdad and elsewhere in the country.

"It's flat false," he said, adding that the subject had not even been raised with him.

"The likelihood of it seems to me to be so low that it does not surprise me that it's never been discussed in my presence, to my knowledge," he told a Pentagon news conference. "Why do I say it's low? Well, we've got all kinds of options and opportunities in that part of the world to locate forces. It's not like we need a new place. We have plenty of friends" in that area." Rumsfeld discounts possible long-term US military presence in Iraq, by Robert Burns, AP, April 22 2003

BWAHAHAHAHA! Sure, LOTS of friends in that area, like, oh, SYRIA and PALESTINE, for example. How can he continue to lie so blatantly? Is it something you get used to when you've been in the government so long? No military bases in Iraq, uh huh, yup. And I've got some lovely land in Florida to sell you, or maybe you'd prefer this bridge - it's a terrorist target, sure, so I'll let it go cheap.

I really want to see how he gets out of this one when Bechtel starts building a Starbucks in the PX near Baghdad. "Did I say Iraq? Oh no, I meant IRAN! Read my lips! No new bases in IRAN!"
