New GOP Campaign Funding method?
Tens of millions of dollars in cash had gone in and out of the South-Central Region vault without any tracking of who deposited or withdrew the money, and why it was taken out," says a report by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, which is in the midst of a series of audits for the Pentagon and State Department.
Much of the first audit reports deal with contracting in south-central Iraq, one of the country's least-hostile regions. Audits have yet to be released for the occupation authority's spending in the rest of Iraq.
The audits offer a window into the chaotic U.S.-led occupation of Iraq of 2003-04, when inexperienced American officials — including workers from President Bush's election campaign — organized a cash-intensive "hearts and minds" mission to rebuild Iraq's devastated economy.
Did you catch that - Bush's campaign stooges organized a cash give away worth billions that has NOTHING to do with a campaign. Political operatives on the take. What's the point of putting your party soldiers in charge of billions in cash if you can't profit a little by having it set up so that the program is unauditable? So that there are no signatures required to check out, oh say, $10 Million in cash? Every week. This is a new level of money-laundering that makes organized crime look like girl scouts.
