WAXMAN: WASTE, FRAUD AND ABUSE IN IRAQ

Last Tuesday, the Oversight Committee of the U. S. Congress began a series of hearings on waste, fraud and abuse in Iraq of taxpayers’ money, focused mainly on Iraqi reconstruction, Homeland Security contracting, and prescription drug pricing. The hearings will finish tomorrow.

In his opening remarks that day, Chairman Henry Waxman stated that the war in Iraq has given private contractors an “unprecedented role” in providing services, even when it is been next to impossible sorting out overhead, subcontracts, sub-subcontracts, profit, and performance.

Who do you think those “private contractors” are? Ha... Halli... Hallibur... Hallipu? Halli something...






UPDATE


Jesper has more interesting information on his blog about this topic. He tells it like it is:

“I´ve been amazed how corrupt the US administration appeared, in what seems to be a very likely case. This, if turns out to be as big as reported, might be regarded as one of the great crimes of our time”.

He also posted a “link” to a very disturbing documentary entitled “Iraq´s missing millions” which describes the current conditions of the Iraqi people after “Mission Accomplished”.

You are welcome, man! I think you are doing a great job! Ali´s video is highly disturbing just as this whole issue is.

Greetings
