A quick run-down of the contents of this documentary for those who can't see it or missed it:
It examined the ties of the top tiers of the US Government to contractors in Iraq tasked with re-building the country, as well as the involvement and
ties with those "hand picked" to form Iraqs first government.
It included interviews with people conducting investigations into alleged corruption, and fraud, the illegal ways the contractors were chosen.
Along the way, it highlighted alleged ways the charges to the US Government for services were inflated, including the use of bogus companies set up
elsewhere for the purpose of doubling the bill sent to the US Government.
It also covered the controversial law that was passed that means that all contractors in Iraq are immune from prosecution (something the Iraqi
government are attempting to overturn at the moment), as well as the interests of the top guys in DC (including the President and Vice-President).
It was a very damming documentary.
In total, it is thought $21.3 Billion dollars has "disappeared". And that's only what we know about...
