Groan, not another one
Check out this story today in Australian News: Kickback 'paid through shadowy agent'. And where was that shadowy agent based? You guessed it, Canada.
Albert Shimoon, based in Ottawa, often referred to expenses he incurred in Iraq and the high cost of doing business there, and Mr Joyce said he did not think that might have involved illicit payments.
"It did not occur to me that they were illicit ... that didn't cross my mind," he said.
"I regarded all of that carry on of Shimoon as exactly that – carry on." Mr Joyce admitted he never did any checks on Mr Shimoon's company, AS International Enterprise.
"The reality is that Albert's a one man band and he probably has a number of companies floating around," he told the inquiry.
How many floating around in Canada? How many Oil-for-Food connections can one country have and still not hold a public inquiry? Note to new Canadian government...

From the Librano cartel training manual, Volume one, section one item "A":
"All individual actions must be taken only with enough stealth to provive plausable deniability" for ( In order of importance):
1) Your Cartel leader
2) Your immediate patronage network
3) You national Party patronage infrastucture
Failure to abide by the "PD" protocol prioratization will result in the cartel regaining its plausable deniability priority by ratting out your slimey ass totally and making sure you never get near your Librano "amnesia maker" bank account in a country that sells cheese and chocolate

Being a lieberal means never having to say your sorry and never having any shame. These scums will steal the pennies off their dead grandmothers eyes at the funeral home. If our govt. that is now in power does not take a deep look at this fraudulant document called Kyoto and expose it to the world I will have voted for nothing. This whole mess called oil for food, the wheat board. kyoto , etc is all contrived by the theif maurice. When will everyone just do a little dd on this piece of trash and study his bio. It is about as pretty as a cross bettween John Gotti and Saddam.

It has been exposed to the world many times over, but the left would never allow facts or figures to sway them. The Conservatives have promised, correctly to stop the farce that is Kyoto. But with their minority they will need support to do it.
Don't hold your breath. Watch where the resistance comes from then follow the money trail.

Once, when I was young and stuipid, I drank WAY too much wine one night and ended up sitting beside the 'throne' for hours with the 'dry heaves', my head spinning in nausiating circles, the stink made me sicker, digust mixed with regret made me wonder at my own stupidity, - a head ache the next day made me useless and humiliation for what I had done after I had mouthed off to people about a lot of things I knew nothing about made me feel inferior to all others. That is the Liberano story; over and over and over; unlike the dry heaves, the Liberanos in their selfish orgies never 'pass out' they keep digging holes for themselves and us - we will be left with the undigested mess because I don't think there is a 'flush' on that outhouse in Ottawa. It is all going to stink for years. We should all be very ashamed that we voted for any of them (Liberanos); those people who were too weak to get 'on the wagon'and vote for "Change" hang your hollow heads in shame.

I know this man personally, there were no illicit payments to the Iraq government. 20% commission is standard across the board. Remember the commission has to pay for expenses, and travelling back and forth to the middle east on numerous occaions and spending weeks there at a time costs tens of thousands.
