Another key myth in the <span style='font-size: 14pt'>"WHY I HATE B-B-B-BOOOOSH!!!!"</span> platform has expoded in their collectivist faces like an Elmer Fudd cigar.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">It's a rare day when positive news surfaces from the frontlines of Iraq's post-occupation government--or from its troubled economy. However, a U.S. Iraq inspector general report that concluded this week that $6.6 billion in shrink-wrapped cash the U.S. government previously feared had gone missing in the chaotic early days of the Iraq occupation has in fact been safely accounted for.

"The mystery of $6 billion that seemed to go missing in the early days of the Iraq war has been resolved, according to a new report," CNN national security producer Charles Keyes reported Wednesday. "New evidence shows most of that money, $6.6 billion, did not go astray in that chaotic period, but ended up where it was supposed to be, under the control of the Iraqi government, according to a report from the office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction or SIGIR."
Stuart Bowen, the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction, had previously testified that as much as $6.6 billion of the $10 billion the United States shipped to Iraq had disappeared due to "weaknesses in [the Department of Defense's] financial and management controls," Keyes wrote, citing the bureaucratese from a previous SIGIR report.

The cash had in part been drawn from Iraq's own international assets, accrued during the pre-war, UN-run Oil for Food program. It was flown to Iraq in the wake of the U.S. 2003 invasion; the idea was that it would help pay for the Iraq reconstruction and development efforts under the Coalition Provisional Authority, the U.S.-led occupation outfit that dissolved in 2004. The original idea was to store most of the money in accounts in the Central Bank of Iraq; U.S. occupation authorities also apparently stored a few hundred million in a vault at one of Saddam Hussein's palaces they used as their headquarters for various cash needs.

After the Coalition Provision Authority dissolved in 2004, however, it wasn't clear where the funds had gone, the previous SIGIR report said. But apparently, the money was properly transferred to accounts held at the Central Bank of Iraq, the new SIGIR report found.

"But the inspector general's new report says almost all the $6.6 billion was properly handed over to Iraq and its Central Bank," Keyes writes. "'SIGIR was able to account for the unexpected [Development Fund of Iraq] funds remaining in DFI accounts when the [Coalition Provisional Authority] dissolved in June 2004,' the new report says. 'Sufficient evidence exists showing that almost all of the remaining $6.6 billion remaining was transferred to actual and legal [Central Bank of Iraq] control.'"</div></div>

Please turn in your belts when you report to your cells.

No pointy objects for the next thirty days.

Obama saved the day and found the $6.6B when he sent in a group of SEALs, under his command, to locate the money.

This is just another crock of Bull.

In the first place, it wasn't 6.? billion, anyway. It was eight or nine billion that went missing.

Additionally, the cost of Bush's Fiasco in Iraq, has been so devastating to all but the Oil Contractors, and the Bush/Cheney corporate cronies who got the no bid contracts, and for whom that war was actually fought, that there can never be any rational justification for the invasion and occupation of Iraq. BUSh wanted to be a war president, and the American Enterprise Institute, heavily financed by OIL, had been pushing for an invasion of Iraq, and regime change, for years before Bush was ever elected.

Nothing will ever change the vast library of proven lies, stated by Bush, Cheney, Rice and Rumsfled...they are all on video.



Five former Secretaries of State, from both parties, all agree, it was the worst foreign policy decision in our history.

Any idiot who tries to justify Bush's UNCONSTITUTIONAL pre-emptive War In Iraq, in ANY way, shape for form, only proves himself to be a complete hypocrite, and an ignorant HACK, particularly if it is someone who presents himself as a Constitutional Buff, given there is nothing in the Constitution that justifies pre-emptive war.

The right will be in denial on idiot BUSH, and about the Fiasco in Iraq until they drop.

It was a time when they proved beyond a shadow of a doubt, that they are willing to suck up every single lie they are fed, as long as they live, and they are all obvously still doing so to this day.

I agree.

What's more, we now have a TIE in the IG reporting sweepstakes.

The FIRST one said, no, can't find where the money went.

The SECOND said differently.

Clearly, we need a THIRD IG report to break this tie.

Problem: whatever is found will not be transparent, and checkable by the public, since all the contracting information related to Iraq has been sealed for a 30 year period.

<span style="color: #990000">Yep, that's Repiglicans for ya, they're only good at deep sixing the information, lying their asses off and hiding the facts.

Unexplained fires in the VP's office, just after he outed a covert CIA agent.


Five thousand missing e-mails in Rove's office, when we were trying to investigate GONZOGATE, their policy to politicise the entire DOJ, and spread slanderous indictments against innocent Democratics.

And Bush, deep sixed all of his Da Da's illegal dirty tricks, as soon as he got into office, and you can bet your life, there was plenty about the Saudis and the bin Laden's included in that hidden stash of intelligence.

Now we have a nutjob like Cain, who makes it into a joke that he can't pronounce the name of a foreign country....and doesn't even know the names of Presidents of foreign countries.

Typical of the right, that Cain, is in the lead, LMAO! Just goes to show you the gross ignorance of the right.

Hope you saw him on Face The Nation, today! LMAO! What a jerk!
