This probably isn't going to pass...

...but it's a nice thought. KLo in the Corner:
An amendment passed the House by voice-vote last night, sponsored by Rep. Mark Kennedy (R., Mn.). It would limit French, German, Russian, and Syrian influence in postwar Iraq. It would prohibit taxpayer money spent on reconstruction in Iraq from going to any companies in those countries. Here's the text:
An amendment to provide that none of the funds made available in the bill for reconstruction efforts in Iraq may be used to procure goods or services from any entity that includes information on a response to a Request for Proposal (RFP) that indicates that such entity is organized under the laws of France, Germany, the Russian Federation, or Syria.
Now that's some legislation I can get behind. Call me vengeful.
