Mess-o-potamia. Remember back in 2003 when Iraqi museums in Baghdad were looted, and thousands of priceless artifacts dating back 5000 years were taken? Rumsfeld was so incredibly concerned about the potential loss that he quipped,
My goodness, were there that many vases? Is it possible there were that many vases in the whole country?
Even back then, it was the media's fault for anything bad that was happening in Iraq. Well, it turns out that yes, there really were that many vases. And the money from the sale of those stolen vases (and other artifacts) are being used to fund the terrorists:
Donny George [director of Iraq's National Museum] told cultural experts at a UNESCO meeting that 15,000 objects had been stolen from the museum and only 4,000 had been returned.

"Rich people are buying stolen material ... Money is going to Iraq and they're buying weapons to use against Iraqi police and U.S. forces," George said during a meeting to assess the state of Iraq's cultural heritage.
Oops. And KKKarl Rove says that it's liberals who are to blame for the continuing violence in Iraq. Pig.
