Audit finds US Hid Cost of Iraq Projects
Nice... it is so nice to see our hard-earned tax money is put to good use in Iraq: "The State Dept agency in charge of $1.4 billion in reconstruction money in Iraq used an accounting shell game to hide ballooning cost overruns on its projects there and knowingly withheld info on schedule delays from Congress, a federal audit released late Friday has found. The agency hid construction overruns by listing them as overhead or administrative costs, according to the audit, written by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, an independent office that reports to Congress, the Pentagon and the State Dept." So Congress, the Pentagon, and the State Dept ALL were duped? And to think... we honestly thought that FEMA was the most inept and crooked govt agency to worry about. Sweet Jesus... I wouldn't entrust BushCo to properly schedule a gangbang in a whorehouse.
