Wow – further signs that Bush and company have ADD.
The United States Congress has stepped in to find nearly $300m in humanitarian and reconstruction funds for Afghanistan after the Bush administration failed to request any money in the latest budget.
Remember all those quotes about how America was going to help the poor people of Afghanistan get out from under the mantle of the evil-ones? How we weren’t going to walk away from Afghanistan after dropping bombs on them? How, after killing many innocent citizens of the country, we would “Marshall Plan” Afghanistan? Guess Bush didn’t remember all that… Gee, what support the people of Iraq have to look forward too!
