Talk:Restructuring and reducing Iraq's official debt
Following moved from old file.
President George W. Bush's announcement on December 5, 2003, that James A. Baker III would be sent post haste to handle Post-war Iraq/Iraqi debt may have been a surprise to some, but not to Baker and about a gazillion folks around the world, had they read their July 28, 2003 Independent/UK newspaper (online or otherwise). Recent speculation is that things have gotten "so bad" in Iraq, that a Poppy Bushite has had to come to the rescue. Nah! It's been the plan all along!
- "Mr Bush is considering asking Mr Baker, among his father's most trusted allies, to work alongside Paul Bremer, the head of the US-led civil authority. Mr Baker may be asked to concentrate on running Iraq's economy and the physical infrastructure while Mr Bremer focuses on developing an interim Iraqi administration."
