We’re not the most worldly here at DSMW World Headquarters. However, we do know that bribes should look like aid, project funding or, heck, even gifts. Everybody in the room knows what’s going on, but one does have to keep up appearances.
Imagine our surprise when we just read that Afghan president (and part-time hat model) Hamid Karzai has admitted to receiving large bags of cash from Iran. But President Karzai insisted that there was nothing wrong with the bribes money because:
“the money was not for an individual but to help run the president’s office.”
Whew! Thanks for clearing that up. We were worried there for a moment.
Oh and while you’re being so forthcoming… what have our billions helped pay for?
