A confusion about sequence

The Reality-Based Community

Given that the besetting problem in Pakistani politics is corruption, has anyone done a careful analysis of how much $10 billion in bribes (that’s less than a month’s spending in Iraq, if you’re keeping score at home) would buy us in Islamabad?

I think we know pretty exactly what $10 billion in bribes would buy us in Islamabad, because that’s roughly what we’ve spent in unaccounted “security assistance”.

Oh, you wanted to bribe people to do sensible things? That’s another matter enirely.
