From the "Oh Please Tell Me He Did Not Just Say That" Department

Senator John W. Warner, chairman of the Armed Services Committee wants some answers, and he wants 'em fast. Toward that end, he says he intends to summon Donald Rumsfeld for a quicky hearing when Congress returns next week:
"The level of concern is, I think, gradually rising," Mr. Warner said in an interview on Friday. "Our nation has given so much to the Iraqi people, and what are they giving us in return?"
Oooh, I know that one! Pick me, pick me!

How about $8 billion dollars for starters?

But that probably won't stop us from going all noblesse oblige on them and suggesting they give some more.

We're big like that.
