    Never mind the family values mess in the Republican Party, look what a bad job they've done with our money.

    (CNN) -- The U.S. State Department is unable to account for most of $1.2 billion in funding that it gave to DynCorp International to train Iraqi police, a government report said Tuesday.

    An International Police Liaison Officer hired by DynCorp stands near new Iraqi police recruits in Falluja, Iraq.

    "The bottom line is that State can't account for where it went," said Glenn D. Furbish, who was involved in putting together the 20-page report for the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction (SIGIR).

    The Department of State's Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) "did not have the information needed to identify what DynCorp provided under the contract or how funds were spent," the report said.

    Patters (or whoever), do you really - really - believe that it makes any difference whether it's Repubs or Demos in office when it comes to lying, stealing and cheating? The only difference I see is that the Repubs heap it on themselves when they violate the very principles they espouse. The dems just try not to draw any attention to morals...you know, like money in the freezer.. :bricks:

    Power and money corrupt - with very few exceptions.
