Only 15 percent?


This account of U.S. Agency for International Development's pre-solicitation of U.S. companies (including, of course, Cheney's former company Halliburton) for contracting work in rebuilding Iraq has the interesting detail that they are being asked to expect to have to rebuild 15 percent of the soon-to-be-defeated nation's electric grid. Seems like the Bush administration has got this thing very well planned out.
