Well isent this just fine and dandy. I think it is good to know where at least some of the money is going. In this case it seems to be going into the hands of crooks and criminals. It gets worse then what is listed above. The article goes on to say that the U.S. is paying two hundred and seventy thousand USD a year to pay for cell phones that have never been registered to authorized users. I can't help but wonder if any criminal will ever pay for these crimes.

This is a important subject. My best guess is XE Blackwater was involved in major part of this looting and stealing. Many times random news reports have surfaced which talked by Blackwater contractors involved in smuggling and other illegal acts in Iraq.

Thanks for posting.
I agree with the amount of dollars that is missing this is an important issue. Unfortunately it seems people hear don't necessarily agree with those thoughts.

Why blame XE? You don't think the US government is capable of stealing from itself? Or losing control of funds/material??

Who do you mean when you say US Government? XE Blackwater is not some ordinary contractrs, they have highly placed sources in US Government. Among that the reason I pointed out XE was due to various news sources printing outt news stories about Blackwater involved in smuggling in Iraq which usually ended up getting not much attention.
