A Billion Here, A Billion There... 

Shocking, just shocking, the fiscal irresponsibility of Bu$hCo. Or at least it would be if we weren’t living in Bizzaro America. I mean, it’s even worse than we thought. It just never fails—as soon as you think the lying and looting can’t get worse, it does. According to AP:

Iraq became awash in billions of dollars in cash after the U.S. invasion two years ago, often with few or no controls over how that money was spent and accounted for. From the $8.8 billion provided to Iraq's interim government to millions provided to U.S. contractors, investigations have detailed a system ripe for abuse.

The latest indication of that came Wednesday when investigators released a report saying $96.6 million in cash could not be properly accounted for. The total included more than $7 million that was simply gone, according to the report from the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction.

But it’s okay, because congress has refused to allocate any more funds for King George’s Splendid Little War, realizing that it’s a waste of lives and money.

Oh, wait…House Approves $81.4 Billion Iraq War Package

$81.4 billion would buy health coverage for how many kids? How many schools could we build for that? Find out at National Priorities Project
