Donald Rumsfeld lashes out at the media for drawing the wrong picture »I picked up a newspaper today, and I couldn't believe it, I read eight headlines. And it talked about chaos, violence, unrest ... I've never seen anything like it. And here is a country that's being liberated." See if you can hear an audio excerpt from his speech, it's quite entertaining to listen to this selfrighteous bitter old man. But oh well, it seems that for a change some of the stuff the newspapers print is true - the US military spends most of their effort in Baghdad on preventing looting and a curfew has been announced, they are even asking local authorities for help.

In the meantime Bush tries to get a tax cut for the rich approved, the issue of oil finally gets into the picture and he started an effort to include Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia to become full-fledged members of the obsolete NATO. Seems like he's working on his one little version of the UN, mostly with states he wouldn't even find on a map. If you don't believe me or the press, get it directly from the horse's mouth: today's White House press briefing by Ari Fleischer.
