Why do we continue to hear about missing billions from Iraq?

No wonder Bush has made such a mess of the place. He can’t even win the war on accounting. Another mercenary group and more missing money. When will they learn that this is taxpayers hard-earned money they are throwing around and wasting? This story also explains the MIA Iraqi army that we used to hear was stepping up, any day now.

The U.S. State Department is unable to account for most of $1.2 billion in funding that it gave to DynCorp International to train Iraqi police, a government report said Tuesday.

“The bottom line is that State can’t account for where it went,” said Glenn D. Furbish, who was involved in putting together the 20-page report for the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction (SIGIR).

The Department of State’s Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) “did not have the information needed to identify what DynCorp provided under the contract or how funds were spent,” the report said.
