I'm sure some of you read the internets and have developed ideas about things like the war and the conditions in Iraq. You may hear that people in Iraq are angry that nothing is being built and that they don't have water or electricity. This is obviously a plot by the liberal media types that want us to lose the war and the Iraqis who have no appreciation for our construction efforts. To those who say we don't have anything to show for our construction efforts, I say, "Psha!". We have accomplished our mission--again. And almost on time and on budget.
Just goes to show that the liberal media are defeatocrats, and that Iraqis have no sense of gratitude for our rebuilding efforts. Ingrates!
The $592 million embassy occupies a chunk of prime real estate two-thirds the size of Washington's National Mall, with desk space for about 1,000 people behind high, blast-resistant walls. The compound is a symbol both of how much the United States has invested in Iraq and how the circumstances of its involvement are changing.
