Good job Danielle, revealing how idiotic our gov is, putting
our hard-earned tax money into a shredder!

If so many construction projects are terminated for reasons
she points out, like bombings & conflict zones, then why did
we go ahead with building the world's largest embassy in the
middle of chaos & bedlam?

And worse, where are all the contractors (and our money),
since they fled these areas?

Worse still, why do our trusted leaders continue to award
construction projects in a failed war zone? Croniism?

I wonder what a US Tax man are doing in an Iraqian tax case as this. I thought Iraq was an independent country so how on earth can it be a US tax problem?

Anyways we all knew this from the start, all those countries who was with US from the start making a illegal war in Iraq, would get the contracts for rebuilding the land.

And who controls these companies who won the contracts?

Follow the money trail, and i´ll bet that your dear pres. and all his fellow war criminals have huge financial interests in Iraq with their private companies.

This is more of the good work of Stuart Bowen, uncovering government contract violations and price over-runs. Read about what the administration has been trying to do to shut him up...

Why it doesn't pay to rock the WOT boat

Looks like it's time for the Iraqis to start paying for some of the bill for a change. We went over there to help them out by their request, and we get stuck with the bill.

Failed projects falsely described as 'complete' by Bush administration 28 Apr 2008 Millions of dollars of lucrative Iraq reconstruction contracts were never finished because of excessive delays, poor performance or other factors, including failed projects that are being falsely described by the U.S. government as complete, federal investigators say. The audit released Sunday by Stuart Bowen Jr., the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction, provides the latest snapshot of an uneven reconstruction effort that has cost U.S. taxpayers more than $100 billion. Last year, congressional investigators said as much as $10 billion -- or one in six dollars -- charged by U.S. contractors for Iraq reconstruction were questionable or unsupported, and warned that significantly more taxpayer money was at risk.

You've all made good points, and since this tax dollar waste has been
exposed, why don't we do something about it? Time to stop the insanity
of corrupt authority, isn't it?
