Confirming what we already knew, part II

More confirmation of what we already knew: an independent study of companies awarded US government contracts to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan has linked Iraq deals to Bush donations. The comapnies involved collectively gave Bush over US$500,000 - "more than they gave collectively to any other politician over the past dozen years." There were also strong family and business linkages with members of the Bush administration.

Corruption and cronyism. Who'd have thunk it?
