    Someone lined their pockets big time.. a paltry amount is missing...

    Brings to mind when Bremer landed in Bagdad with a C-130 filled with American Dollars and no one knew where that went.. or the time they lost another cargo plane filled with AK-47's... these folks need to be more careful.

    It happens all of the time..

    The saddest thing about all of this, is this is a drop in the bucket for "lost funds" by the stinkin pentagon.

    9-10-01

    Rumsfeld announces the pentagon has "lost" 2.3 TRILLION. We all know what happened the next day.

    Rumsfeld Sept 10, 2001: The Pentagon cannot account for $2.3 TRILLION | America Needs 435 Real Americans to run for Congress



    when are we as a nation going to rise up and hold these thieves accountable? This is absolute crap. People are dying from lack of healthcare, our youth are undereducated and our social security is under funded.

    This is BU!!$#!T!!!!!!!

    Well from my foxhole in Iraq, there are pretty stringent constraints on ICERP dollars and how they are used. A major issue is that some projects are shared cost and the Iraqis never complete their part which results in projects that are not completed which in turn is a loss of dollar and US poltical capital. Do not discount the amount of corruption among Iraqi Officials either.

    Neocon conservatives LOVE war...as long as someone else is doing it.

    The Washington Chickenhawks (That would be a great minor league baseball team name!) like to masturbate while watching John Wayne movies.
