More Possible Fraud in Iraq

Recent polls show support for the war in Iraq is declining. According to a recent report, about $100 million has simply, disappeared. It is controversial exactly where the money went, or how much of it might have been stolen. According to this article, they have found indications of fraud in a recent audit.

I recently wrote of a former FBI Agent, who is charging that another contractor is defrauding the government in Iraq.

Revelations, such as this, take away from the sacrifices of the military people serving there. It will also do little to win the "hearts and minds" of the local population.

In my opinion, anyone doing this in a war zone, should be subjected to the severest criminal penalties possible.
