    This $75 million dollar project has been totally mismanaged. Another well constructed project by the Parsons Corporation. If your eating lunch, you might want to hold off reading.

    There's only one way to fix this situation, get one of those Parson Corp CEO's over there and cut his f-cking head off, on TV.

    Maybe we should send over some of the people that managed the Big Dig.

    The greed of the US contractors, on our dime, coupled with the below paints a pretty bleek pix of what are we doing in Iraqnam. I guess the main stream media is to blame for this ineptitude on both sides, maybe then it might be better if we keep it a secret and don't tell anyone.

    BAGHDAD -- The plan was simple: Iraqi troops would block escape routes while U.S. soldiers searched for weapons house by house. But the Iraqi troops didn't show up on time.
    When they finally did appear, the Iraqis ignored U.S. orders and let dozens of cars -- including an ambulance full of armed militiamen -- pass through checkpoints in eastern Baghdad, American soldiers said in recent interviews.
    It wasn't an isolated incident, they added.
    U.S. commanders have hailed the performance of Iraqi troops in the crackdown on militias and insurgents in Baghdad. But some U.S. soldiers say the Iraqis serving alongside them are among the worst they've ever seen -- seeming more loyal to militias than the government.
    Last week, for example, Sgt. 1st Class Eric Sheehan discovered that barriers and concertina wire that were supposed to bolster defensive positions had been dragged away -- again -- under the noses of nearby Iraqi soldiers.
    I "suggest we fire these IAs and get them out of the way," Sgt. Sheehan, of Jennerstown, Pa., reported to senior officers, referring to Iraqi army troops.

    If governemnt is spending money you can bet there's money being wasted and pocketed.

    Like I said, maybe we should send them the people who managed the Big Dig. We should send the contractors too. I love the people who think that the Haliburtons of the world only make money in Iraq. HA! Crap like that happens every minute of every day in this country. People need to wake up and understand that the government is GROSSLY INEFFICIENT. It has been for 50 years now, maybe more.
