Seriously guys ....this is now what you are going to try to sell to the American People. Wasn't 9/11 a coverup of a papertrail because billions were unaccounted for....and now the Iraqis are to blame?
Nearly $9 billion of money spent on Iraqi reconstruction is unaccounted for because of inefficiencies and bad management, according to a watchdog report published Sunday.
An inspector general's report said the U.S.-led administration that ran Iraq until June 2004 is unable to account for the funds.
"Severe inefficiencies and poor management" by the Coalition Provisional Authority has left auditors with no guarantee the money was properly used," the report said.

This isn't American tax payer money. It was Iraqi oil money assets that were seized. From what I also heard, the Iraqi interim government after Saddam was removed would blatently inflate their employee count in order to fraudulently draw upon that money.
