I was stunned this morning to hear on NPR an economist who was saying that while the $87 billion for occupying Iraq was a lot of money there, it wasn’t all that much here, basically the income of a Fortune 100 company or a moderately sized metropolitan area. NPR, defending the bill for the occupation? The interviewer actually asked leading questions to let the economist go on about how it wasn’t a major budget buster for the US.
