iraq in year zero

it's a truism that "war is good business," but it's particularly horrifying when the profiteers' bottom line becomes a factor in national security policy. this article had me flashing back to frances fitzgerald's fire in the lake and neil sheehan's a bright shining lie, two chronicles from an earlier era of how that shit can go wrong. thanks, matt, for this disturbing read; i didn't really wanna go to sleep tonight anyway.
