Iraq War collateral damage: Bush, Blair, Wolfowitz,Karl Rove and Scooter Libby

Skeletons are tumbling out of the cupboard when it comes to people who played a key role in bringing about the Iraq war on, as it turned out, trumped up charges of attempting to manufacture weapons of mass destruction and collision with Al-Qaida.

First it was Dick Cheney's chief aide-Lewis 'Scooter' Libby - who went so far ahead to obstruct justice and make false statements to a CIA operative's identity leak. Kaarl Rove, Bush's closest advisor has been accused of initiating the leak, angered by the fact that the operative's (Valerie Plame) husband- a Congressman- had wrote a report indicting USA's involvement into the Iraq War. He was found guilty of obstruction of justice and is now firmly in the dock.

Then it was Dick Cheney himself, who although dis-credited for his hawkish role in the Iraq War, went on to be lampooned nationally and a favourite target to take jibes at (even by his own President) for shooting a friend (accidently) during a hunting expedition.

The President is also wounded mortally as far as his approval ratings are concerned. No President has had ratings this low for such a long time and who is reviled so widely internationally.

His friend across the Atlantic,Tony Blair, is nursing his wounds for not realizing his life ambition for leaving a legacy and a place in the history books as a man who brought about a lasting change in the U.K's political climate and thinking. A few weeks ago, he got a taste of how unpopular he has become , after he was fiercely attacked for preaching about the effects of Global warming while enjoying a 'carbon saturated' vacation across the Atlantic himself.

And now we have Paul Wolfowitz, the current head of the World Bank,who is caught with his pants down, after ordering a huge pay hike to his own girl friend in the World Bank.

Hmmm...collateral damage, wat?
