Saudi Prince Bandar Bought Powell A Car

Now we know why the President and Turd Blossom refer to the Saudi Prince as "Bandar Bush." Only a Republican would make the argument that its ok to accept a car from a Saudi Prince because its technically "legal."
A few nights after he resigned his post as secretary of state two years ago, Colin L. Powell answered a ring at his front door. Standing outside was Prince Bandar, then Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States, with a 1995 Jaguar. Mr. Powell’s wife, Alma, had once mentioned that she missed their 1995 Jaguar, which she and her husband had traded in. Prince Bandar had filed that information away, and presented the Powells that night with an identical, 10-year-old model. The Powells kept the car — a gift that the State Department said was legal — but recently traded it away.
COMMENT FROM CLIFF: This is of course why we trump up evidence against Iraq while Bush's sponsors get to send 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers here and still get invited to break out the brandy snifters at Camp David. Because, on a larger level with oil, and a smaller one with all manner of gifts like this (If Saddam had only given Powell that '97 Jaguar...), the Bush Republican Party has been bought by the Saudis.

He could have at least sprung for a new one.

Colin Powell needs to get a subpeona and testify under oath.
Let's start with why he lied to the UN, the world community and the people of the USA.

why would anyone miss a 10yr old Jag? They must have a thing for their repairman.

It is humid out, better reset the engine timing. Does anyone know if the barometric pressure is going up or down - that should be taken into consideration as the engine is calibrated, so I can go to the store for a gallon of milk and a newspaper.

H!! (chris matthew laugh) My brother loved the Jags, but they were as much a pain in the ass to work on as the MG's. Totally awful.

Jaguar...? Permanently out of style. (just like Powell)

Actually, since the 1989 Ford buyout Jag reliability has not been a problem. The 1995 model has Jaguar's tuning know-how applied to Ford's mass-production and quality control.

Can you really just walk up to Powell's doorbell and ring it?

If you know how to find where these people live, yes you can just go to the door and ring the bell.
