An Indian Civilizational Perspective

USD 9 million for a meeting of a despot with Bush in Oval Office!

This is another incredible story! Bush has a BIG problem on hand.. he and his cronies seem more and more like compulsive Kleptomaniacs! Cant help stealing money.. or “making” it off all under the table ways!!

=========

The lobbyist Jack Abramoff asked for $9 million in 2003 from the president of a West African nation to arrange a meeting with President Bush and directed his fees to a Maryland company now under federal scrutiny, according to newly disclosed documents.

The African leader, President Omar Bongo of Gabon, met with President Bush in the Oval Office on May 26, 2004, 10 months after Mr. Abramoff made the offer. There has been no evidence in the public record that Mr. Abramoff had any role in organizing the meeting or that he received any money or had a signed contract with Gabon. (YEAH RIGHT! As if someone would leave a trail behind!)

White House and State Department officials described Mr. Bush’s meeting with President Bongo, whose government is regularly accused by the United States of human rights abuses, as routine. The officials said they knew of no involvement by Mr. Abramoff in the arrangements. Officials at Gabon’s embassy in Washington did not respond to written questions. (Hahaha this is crazy.. Bush meets a despot in his OVAL office and its business as usual?? I remember that top Indian ministers have not been granted that “privilege”!)
