Bush Appoints Former ‘Big Dig’ Manager As Special Envoy To Darfur

The Bush Administration’s efforts to end the genocide in Darfur has been plagued by serious errors. Now, the President Bush is appointing Andrew Natsios as special envoy to Darfur to get things back on track.

Who is Andrew Natsios?

— As director of U.S. Agency for Intenational Development Natsios promised that the U.S. contribution to reconstruction of Iraq would be no more that $1.6 billion. Congress has already appropriated nearly $20 billion for reconstruction in Iraq. The CBO estimates the total cost of reconstruction will be between $50 and $100 billion.

— Natsios was the manager of Boston’s “Big Dig,” widely considered one of the most mismanaged public works projects in history.


Sounds like just the guy to help solve the “world’s worst humanitarian crisis.”
