    That's nothing. Look at this:

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Nearly $9 billion of money spent on Iraqi reconstruction is unaccounted for because of inefficiencies and bad management, according to a watchdog report published Sunday.

    An inspector general's report said the U.S.-led administration that ran Iraq until June 2004 is unable to account for the funds.

    CNN.com - Audit: U.S. lost track of $9 billion in Iraq funds - Jan 30, 2005

    9 billion. Can you believe it? Too bad nobody cared.

    Yep the thing is though. Stuff like this happens all the time. Not just in Iraq, in all our spending, and government programs. Just one of the many reasons I tend to oppose government solutions to any problems.

    Because it is just more money for them to Steal from us in one way or another.

    Those kids may not have soap to clean hands but African men have learned how to clean their genitals courtesy of US stimulis dollars.

    Washington D.C. Public Schools.... not the least bit surprising. That school district is a black hole of waste and malfeasance. They spend close to $25k per student per year, which is an outrageously high figure. While it's obviously not good that our military lost track of $9 billion, you seem to suggest that we should be shifting some of that money to D.C. schools and we shouldn't be. They don't need it. They don't even need half of what they're getting. They just need to learn how to spend it right.

    You bitch about the fact these students do not have soap and paper towels with a picture called ' fancy stuff like paper towels" and I comment that the federal government is SPENDING dollars on assuring others cleanliness of their genitals and you call that stupid and neg rep me?

    You either want dollars spent on children here and call it 'smart spending' or we spent it on other countries when we DON'T have the dollars for our own children!
