[casi-analysis] Re: CASI-analysis digest, Vol 1 #175 - 1 msg

[ This message has been sent to you via the CASI-analysis mailing list ]

In the midst of the carnage in Iraq and F16s dropping 500
pound bombs in the middle of cities, demonstartors taking
their protests to Najaf, journalists ordered out by police,
a problematic conference that is supposed to be a major
landmark in Iraq's new political arrangements, oil prices
rocketing, more dodgy accounting at Halliburton, the family
of the Abu Ghraib whistle blower in protective custody,
Saddam's debt to be extracted from starving Iraqis, more
aggressive posturing at the US presidential elections, etc,
why is CASI wasting time on this self-serving Baghdad
Bulletin rubbish?
