Tonight, former Minister of Trade, Defense, & later Finance in the Interim Iraq Governing Council, Ali Allawi, who is also promoting his new book, The Occupation of Iraq: Winning the War, Losing the Peace.
Jon begins tonight's show with "Mess O'Potamia", where amid one of the bloodiest days in Iraq, 6 Shiite cabinet ministers resigned because Prime Minister al-Maliki will not set a timetable for U.S. troop withdrawal. Also, Jon looks at Bush's new war czar position, which has been created to apparently cut through all the federal bureaucracy bogging down the Iraq War. Since the position has been rejected by 5 generals that have been asked to fill the spot, the White House is changing the name from "war czar" to "execution manager". Finally, Senior Financial Correspondent John Oliver talks with Jon about the contradictions plaguing the U.S. economy as the stock market hits an all time high, but the dollar has reduced in value by half as $1 now equals 2 British pounds.
