Hubris Ratchets Upward

12:30 PM -- TimesOnLine reports that construction of the American Embassy in Baghdad is proceeding apace. According to proud architects, "the diplomatic outpost will be visible from space and cover an area that is larger than the Vatican city...

"Looming over the skyline, the embassy has the distinction of being the only big US building project in Iraq that is on time and within budget..."

The budget? A mere $592 million. Chump change.
