The Jokes Write Themselves, II

Abu G is off to Iraq to teach the Iraqi Justice Department how to spy on Iraqis, loosen the definition of torture, and purge of federal prosecutors who refuse to fix elections:

The Justice Department said that Gonzales arrived in Baghdad on Saturday for his third trip to Iraq to meet with department officials who have been there to help fashion the country's legal system.

"I am pleased to see firsthand ... the progress that the men and women of the Justice Department have made to rebuild Iraq's legal system and law enforcement infrastructure," Gonzales said in a statement released by the department.

His optimistic assessment came despite the frequent sectarian lawlessness and killings in the country.
