$10,000 for information on attacks in Iraq

$10,000 for information on attacks in Iraq Sort of like playing the lottery. If you figure the odds on getting the big fish as in Powerball --Saddam for 25 million--are against you, then play the daily for 25 thousand. Turn in your brother-in-law, for example for some quick bucks. Sounds like a worthwhile way to snag some bad folks and I am surprised it hadn't been used earlier. Good use of my tax bucks.

A good idea, I suppose. But those committing the terror attacks will counter by making "examples" of suspected snitches.

Don't like it? Stop paying taxes.

Given the 'success' of the $15 mil for the sons program, the 10K for 'information' program makes sense. Just wait 'till they try to fill out the paperwork....

Why not, fight fire with fire. The bounty on our soldiers(an FPP a month back iirc). Good use of my tax bucks. How much American $s have been collected in Iraq that was Saddams(probably is my tax $s but never read it in the article). A previous FPP from yesterday mentioned that some Iraqis were not accepting the rewards either(be hard to resist). The Iraqi harboring Saddam's sons did; 30M$, wonder if he plans spending it in the USA?

How much for finding those thousand tons of anthrax and nuclear weapons? Seems a bit more important considering the regime could give these things to shady organzitions which could use them for terrorist attacks*.

*Assuming the Bush administration didn't make all that up just to goto war.
