There was an interesting article in the June 7th New Yorker about Ahmad Chalabi, the Manuel Noriega of Iraq (beloved and lavishly funded by our covert agencies, imprisoned when he became inconvenient). A schoolmate of Chalabi?s is quoted offering a psychological explanation for his determination to secure U.S. intervention in Iraq. “Ahmad wanted to avenge his father’s ouster and the deprivation of his lands. Now he’s trying to fit in his father’s shoes, like your little Bush.”
I resist boiling everything down to the family drama, but sometimes–well, the shoe fits. How could Bush transform himself into a truly big man? Dream a little dream of transformation with this creative clip by filmmaker Jen Simmons.
