Fraud and Corruption


WASHINGTON (AP) —" As much as $60 billion in U.S. tax dollars has been lost to waste and fraud in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade due to lax oversight of contractors, poor planning and corruption, according to an independent panel."



I refrain from political discourse in this forum. However, this kind of news makes me puke. We clearly all knew this was going on...but when it is confirmed and quantified it underscores the outrage we should all feel.

Amen, Sir. If I spend too much time dwelling on such, it dampens my never-ending "glass half full" attitude. xoxo

But if the Inspector General asks questions, or wants to audit, the contractor whines to his congressman, who threatens the IG's budget for "harassing my fine patriotic constituent"...been there, as you can guess

sometimes the real news is just too depressing...i have learned this since giving birth this summer, and being up at the crack of dawn each day to feed the baby and watch every 4:30 am news broadcast on tv....
