No Evidence of Fraud
The Independent Electoral Commission of Iraq (IECI) has found NO significant fraud in the Constitutional Referendum. IECI commissioner Adil Al-Lami said:
"[Investigators] didn't discover any serious violations during the constitutional referendum."
He called the allegations for fraud "baseless allegations." (Big surprise since the allegers never even attempted to found their allegations on fact.)I'm going to conduct my own referendum here: who thinks the rejectionists like Khalid Jarrar, the opposition groups, the international media are going to be satisfied?
Rather than force them to come up with their own angles and charges. I'll give them to them here:
- "The IECI is merely an arm of the Iraqi government."
- "The IECI is dominated by George W. Bush cronies!"
- "The IECI members were offered jobs at Haliburton."
- "The IECI was afraid to tell the truth lest it cause a civil war."
The details are irrelevant. Under the headlines they could post excepts from Harold Robbins novels for all the difference it will make.
