    in the past day or two which I am frantically trying to find which asserted that Mr. Bush was using his powers to seize the assets of this contributor, Hunt, using his directive allowing him to seize the assets of anyone that interferes with the US effort in Iraq.

    The justification that this was undermining the efforts of an oil law to be reached with the Iraqi government because Hunt was dealing directly with the Kurds.

    The article stated that it caused great pains for Mr. Bush to have to do this to such a loyal "friend" (crony/contributor). Also that Hunt was thought to have left the country.

    It struck me as odd because it would have been the first known instance of GWB using this directive that I have heard of, and he used it against a crony, but it arguably would have played well because it showed GWB actually had some integrity ... HAHAHAHA.

    Now I am wondering if the article I read was some type of parody. Anyways I can't find it anywhere on the net now.
