Banksy - Guerilla Artist

I'm not sure if you're familiar with Banksy or not. You should be.

Working anonymously he has defaced the Palestinian side of the Israeli West Bank Wall.
Replaced up to 500 copies of Paris Hilton's debut CD, Paris, in 48 different stores with his own cover art. Music tracks were given titles such as "Why am I Famous?", "What Have I Done?" and "What Am I For?". CDs later sold on ebay for $1500

He placed a crude drawing of a caveman pushing a shopping cart into the British Museum in London. The Museum added it to their permanent collection

His work now sells for 10's of thousands of dollars at auction.

Report Says Pentagon Manipulated Iraq Intel

They lied about WMD's, and Iraq / al-Qaida. I can't understand why the right isn't furious about this.
Acting Inspector General Thomas F. Gimble told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the office headed by former Pentagon policy chief Douglas J. Feith took "inappropriate" actions in advancing conclusions on al-Qaida connections not backed up by the nation's intelligence agencies.

$8.8 Billion of $12 Billion of US funds unaccounted for in Iraq

Who in their right mind would send 363 tons of cash into a war zone? But that's exactly what our government did," the California Democrat said during a hearing reviewing possible waste, fraud and abuse of funds in Iraq.

He said there was no banking system and it would have been impossible to apply modern accounting standards in the midst of a war.
