Makes sense doesn't it? The Republican lawyer,Stuart W. Bowen Jr., has sent American occupation officials to jail on bribery and conspiracy charges, exposed disastrously poor construction work by well-connected companies like Halliburton and Parsons, and discovered that the military did not properly track hundreds of thousands of weapons it shipped to Iraqi security forces.
And he gets a pink slip.
The order comes in the form of an obscure provision that terminates his federal oversight agency, the Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, on Oct. 1, 2007. The clause was inserted by the Republican side of the House Armed Services Committee over the objections of Democratic counterparts during a closed-door conference, and it has generated surprise and some outrage among lawmakers who say they had no idea it was in the final legislation.
This is such bullshit, it reeks to high heaven. Do a good job and you get fired. Do a real shitty job..like "Brownie" and you get promoted..thats the Shrub, his minions and most elected Republicans for you.
The article can be read here on the NYT website.
