"Looting broke out in Baghdad on April 9 [2003] at almost the moment that the last vestiges of the old regime's presence disappeared from the capital. People stormed out of the poorer areas of east Baghdad intent on stripping anything and everything of value from public buildings. The same thing happened in cities across Iraq."

 – Andrew Cockburn, Rumsfeld, 182
