From the Aznar/Bush conversation translation:
The Egyptians are talking to Saddam Hussein. It seems that he’s indicated that he’s willing to go into exile if they let him take 1 billion dollars with him, and all the information that he wants about the weapons of mass destruction.
I grabbed today's Post-Gazette off one of the other tables at the Beehive this morning. 42 billion dollars more for Iraq next year, or something like that.
Think 42 minus 1 is enough billion dollars to have rebuilt New Orleans? Maybe a couple bridges? Feed a couple hungry people?
This is what I get for reading news. I'll stop now.
Besides, I need to pack. ma3d is getting married on the left side of the country...
