Iraq Reconstruction Ripoffs!

The office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction has 52 open cases related to bribery, false billing, contract fraud, kickbacks and theft.

Only 36 of these cases have been referred to the Justice Department for prosecution.

Army Criminal Investigation has 90 criminal investigations under way related to alleged contract fraud in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan.

24 U.S. citizens have been charged or indicted. 19 of those are Army, military and civilian employees. More than $15 million in bribes have changed hands.

The axiom of perpetual war for perpetual peace and profit remains as true today as in the past.
