Samarrai had been awaiting sentencing on charges that he had embezzled $2.5 billion that was intended to ‘rebuild’ Iraq’s decrepit electricity grid.

Your hypocrisy is so vast that if we could somehow use it to fill the ranks in Iraq you could realize your dream and keep us fighting there until the year 3000.
