Jeez, I almost forgot. On Thursday, Rumsfeld, in the "War to Keep Going Until Regime Ends" article cited below, told a Senate hearing on Capitol Hill that there was "no intelligence to suggest that the combat had created a humanitarian crisis in Iraq, and he caught the senators by surprise when he declared, 'I don't believe the United States has the responsibility for reconstruction' of Iraq after the war.

"But Mr. Rumsfeld quickly added, 'We want to participate in reconstruction,' saying that other nations would be encouraged to join the effort, and that much of the money would come from seized Iraqi assets and Iraq's oil revenues."

That does it for Friday.
