Featured this week: US invaders loot Iraq

The scramble for a quick buck by US corporations in the aftermath of
Washington's invasion of Iraq came as no surprise to all but the most
naive. What has astounded many, however, is just how blatant US
President George Bush's administration has been in its cronyism. Green
Left Weekly looks at how the Bush gang is filling the pockets of its
corporate mates.
