Jack Straw - Hero of the Week
Nick, you beat me to it. I also wanted to hail the British Foreign Minister for making an unapologetic stand for truth and for democracy. Here's my favorite quote (actually, it's Nordlinger's paraphrase of Mr. Straw's words):

"The U.S. taxpayer has put an astonishing amount of money in Iraq, through Congress - and that's democracy, by the way. It's only natural that they should want some of the money to come back to American firms. But plenty of subcontracts are going to other Coalition partners. I applaud the astounding generosity of the American people, and I would remind you that the ultimate benefit, of course, accrues to the people of Iraq."

Thank you, sir. We applaud you.
