It's Nouri's Fault
You know they're running out of options when they're desperately trying to foist blame on our "ally," the "government of Iraq" (which, as I've pointed out before, makes South Vietnam look like a rock of stability in comparison). By the way, it's time again to link to Chuck O'Connell's pre-war predictions, at least one of which: "Eventually the misery of the Iraqi people will be blamed on the Iraqis themselves" is pretty well spot-on.
And if they can't stick it on him, well...there's only one option left...
Yep--blaming the Clenis.
