Fake Sheik...

Greg Palast gives the background of the marvellous work of investigative reporters and cameraman Rick Rowley and Dave Enders in his exposure of the "Fake Sheik" that shook the hand of George Bush and was then "terminated".

Greg Palast: Bush's Fake Sheik Whacked: The Surge and the Al Qaeda Bunny is a special investigative report from inside Iraq which is a MUST READ!

"Here's what you need to know that NPR won't tell you:
  1. Sheik Abu Risha wasn't a sheik.

  2. He wasn't killed by Al Qaeda.

  3. The new alliance with former insurgents in Anbar is as fake as the sheik -- and a murderous deceit."


"The sheik wasn't a sheik. He was a fake. While proclaiming to Rick that he was "the leader of all the Iraqi tribes," Abu led no one. But for a reported sum in millions in cash for so-called "reconstruction contracts," Abu Risha was willing to say he was Napoleon and Julius Caeser and do the hand-shake thing with Bush on camera."


But why should we complain as the (fingers stuck in ears, blindfolded monkeys) US taxpayers are being screwed by their Administration and their non-professional and politically compliant "army". Let them pay with their money and their lives if they are not going to fight to end their illegal invasion and occupation!
