Wonder if we could help him..
You may already have.
Posters here for a year have remarked on a media/historian disconnect with the realities of the Iraq "War". For one, the utter failure of any investigation, let alone comment, in the major media, or any, on the money motives of the "anti-war" states and the front orgs they might have funded before the war, which defined the debate - for one, the left media's repetition of the anti-war states "principled" position, and the obsession with the UN portrayed as an organization transcendent of its members' power and money interests.
Not only Food for Oil, but the Al Mada pay-off list, and the biggest of all - oil drilling contracts assigned to Russia and France )Timmerman says worth over $100 billion) plus the $42 billion in Iraqi debt supposedly owed to some of the same states.
The Bush admin has been wholly negligent in not only retelling the reasons for the war and our involvement there, but also explaining French and other motives - most people only read about the five or six times since the war Bush asked "Europe" to help, and was rebuffed. Press and Kerry explain it's due to some personal fault of Bush - Bush doesn't counter.
In this context this fellow has fertile ground.
Many want explanation. Best we get is folks like Michael Moore pretending his voice wasn't heard before, and suggesting inanities like that Saudi Arabia might have wanted this war and influenced Bush. Without a counter, it gains traction.
this failure to explain things also runs with credulous media reporting about what "Europe" thinks or the "EU" - used as a distant mirror to examine Bush's perceived faults, but not the motives and faults of those.
Hopefully this guy can help. The market for such information is wide open. Interesting about his Chalabi connection...
