What's mine is mine, what's yours is negotiable 

More Bushit.

Evelyn Iritani of the LA Times writes:

Incensed that foreign countries were playing favorites in doling out billions of dollars to build airports, roads and dams, the U.S. became a prime cheerleader for a global agreement on government procurement.

Now, the U.S. stands accused of violating the very pact it worked so hard to create.

The Pentagon said last week that companies from France, Canada and other countries that didn't contribute militarily to the Iraq war would be barred from bidding on $18.6 billion in U.S.-funded reconstruction contracts.

But, but—What about the rule of law?

And what about competition? I thought competition was always good, especially if it might save the taxpayers money?
