I didn't have much time, today, so no post. I did get a chance to read the Sunday funnies, yesterday, and OPUS, as usual, was pretty funny.

From Cursor, I found this link:US troops seize award-winning Iraqi journalist
...Dr Fadhil is working with Guardian Films on an investigation for Channel 4's Dispatches programme into claims that tens of millions of dollars worth of Iraqi funds held by the Americans and British have been misused or misappropriated.

The troops told Dr Fadhil that they were looking for an Iraqi insurgent and seized video tapes he had shot for the programme. These have not yet been returned

The director of the film, Callum Macrae, said yesterday: "The timing and nature of this raid is extremely disturbing. It is only a few days since we first approached the US authorities and told them Ali was doing this investigation, and asked them then to grant him an interview about our findings....
It does sound rather odd, doesn't it. I wonder what he had on the tapes. I am sure they will, or have been viewed, but will they will be returned to him?

Whatreallyhappened.com had a link to Controversial lobbyist had close contact with Bush team, Where USA Today is reporting that in the first 10 months of Bush's presidency, Abramoff's office had almost 200 contacts with the Bush administration.
The meetings between Abramoff's lobbying team and the administration ranged from Attorney General John Ashcroft to policy advisers in Vice President Dick Cheney's office, according to his lobbying firm billing records
I'm hoping some dirt rubs off. I hope we get to hear, at least, as much about this as we did the "Runaway Bride".
