Quote of the Week

Via The Green Knight, some leaked documents outline the Bush administration's instructions to the US Department of Agriculture on how to sell the Iraq war:
Several topics I'd like to talk about today - Farm Bill, trade with Japan, WTO, avian flu, animal ID - but before I do, let me touch on a subject people always ask about.... progress in Iraq.

Not exactly the first thing which comes to mind when I think of the USDA, but hey. At least they have a factual, spin-free answer on hand which is relevant to the agricultural sector:
We are helping the Iraqi people build a lasting democracy that is peaceful and prosperous - one that will never again be a safe haven for terrorists, and will serve as a model for freedom in the broader Middle East.
