The United States should create a “deployable reserve” of contracting experts for emergency reconstruction efforts like the one in Iraq and should change federal law to remove the legal straitjackets that have helped slow the effort there, the first official history of the Iraq rebuilding effort has concluded.Whine, Whine, Whine!!!
The history also recommends that the temptation to use noncompetitive contracting should almost always be resisted and that a bidding process should generally be carried out even when it takes more time.
“The use of sole-source and limited competition contracting in Iraq should have virtually ceased after hostilities ended,” it said.
The reference is to a controversial sole-source contract awarded in secrecy in March 2003 to the company then known as Kellogg Brown & Root, a Halliburton subsidiary, to repair oil infrastructure in Iraq.
The history also found some successes in the reconstruction effort, particularly involving small-scale projects. The findings particularly noted the usefulness of a program called the Commander’s Emergency Response Program, which allowed military unit leaders to spend money on modest rebuilding projects in their areas of operation.

If we dropped all that foolishness about there being any civilians outside of the American Area to begin with, then we would not get bogged down in our Anti-Zombie Operations when it comes to clearing out the infestation zones!!!! Which of course would completely cut down on all of this whine, whine, whine, about anything other than Single Source, gave it to the sweat heart dealers, when there would only be those people who were there to put in the American Suburban Tract'd Homes, complete with Mega Malls, and Mall Rats.
So maybe it is time for all of those Evil Liberals to get over their whining and Postively Support Our Glorious Ethnic Cleansers!!! Who are risking life and limb to make the world safe from Zombies and their Zombie Fellow Travellors!!! Or Maybe we will just have to send in the US Military To CLEAN OUT NYC the way that those Iranian Flying Saucers SHOULD have done to a Blue State Down So Infested With Zombies and Ideological Deviationalists Who Oppose the Divine Will Of The Divine Miss W!!!
Granted, there is that other prospect - what if some americans had asked the question about 'why iraq? why now?' back when there was still a chance to explain why it needed to be done, and to actually plan on doing it right the first time.
So do we need to learn just the history of what went wrong AFTER THE FUNDAMENTAL POLICY MISTAKE HAD BEEN MADE????
Or maybe we want to finally work out what really happened to the American Intelligence Product and how did the FUNDAMENTAL POLICY MISTAKE get made????
Or should we all just get it on with why we have so backed the Anti-Zombie Squad, because without them, those bad people would be BAD!!!
