Geez, I just hope none of that shit ends up at the Getty

Okay, remember when Baghdad fell, and the National Museum of Iraq was looted while our troops did nothing because they had been told to go guard the Oil Ministry instead?

And Rumsfeld poo-pooed the effete bleeding-hearts who gave a shit about "vases" and other antiquities?

Well, it turns out the sale of those artifacts is being used to fund...

wait for it...

the insurgency.

Or, as Rumsfeld prefers to call them, "Enemies of the Legitimate Government in Iraq."

Well, as a famous general once said, "Semantics is hell."
