Problem: we want a scapegoat, but we don't have the votes to nail someone at the top

Solution: fire someone further down the ladder instead

Problem: there are these damn laws in place to protect people further down the ladder from being fired for political reasons, laws that insist on those pesky 'facts' and 'evidence'

Solution: since those laws were passed on St. Reagan's watch, we haven't quite figured that one out yet. We'll get back to you.

I'd like to see a citation too, but considering what I know about the whole Iraq Murder Party, I would be far more inclined to believe this is accurate, than a graph that says they can't account for only 4% of it.

Iraq was a Steal-It-All-Now enterprise, and I'm sure it remains unchanged to this day. Grab all you can, get while the getting is good, no questions asked, ain't nobody ever gonna know.

Boom.

We were too busy biatching about how ObamaCare was going to bankrupt America forever to worry about a paltry 8.7 billion dollars that appears to have disappeared without a trace instead of being used to rebuild a country we destroyed based on false intelligence.

Here you go.

The money was in a special fund administered by the US Department of Defense, the Development Fund for Iraq (DFI), and was earmarked for reconstruction projects. But the report says that a lack of proper accounting and poor oversight makes it impossible to say exactly what happened to most of it.
According to the report, the Pentagon is unable to fully account for $8.7bn of funds it withdrew between 2004 and 2007, and of that amount it "could not provide documentation to substantiate how it spent $2.6bn

Obviously they transferred most of the cash to FEMA which used it to build the camps where the Obummer Care Death Panels operate in total secrecy to steal our Freedoms.

The rest was spent on flag pins.

//I just hate talking points


With all due respect, one man's definition of a talking point might be a "report" issued by a bureaucrat ten years after the fact that, without providing concrete evidence, says, "Oh it turns out the money went where it was supposed to go, no harm no foul."

FTFA:

"But apparently, the money was properly transferred to accounts held at the Central Bank of Iraq, the new SIGIR report found."

Glad that's all wrapped up.

And:

"While the bulk of the money was transferred to the Central Bank of Iraq, $217 million remained in a vault in a former presidential palace and was held by the U.S. Defense Department and most was doled out for a variety of projects and payrolls, the report says," Keyes reported. A February 2008 SIGIR audit found that $24.45 million of the $217 million stored at the palace vault remained, and was later turned over to Iraq.

So, even according to this ten-year-after report, $193 million are still missing.

You're making it to complicated.

Here are the facts:

1. This was a law that was had to be signed by the President
2. Barack Obama is currently President

Therefore, Barack Obama was handing terrorists RPGs in Benghazi and killed the Ambasador with purple dildo shaped bat.

If only the State Department had a little more money budgeted out, they could have prevented the worst American tragedy Rand Paul's ever been told to be outraged about.

Say, who was in control of the State Department's purse strings, and who voted to cut that budget? I guess we'll never know, another mystery like "who was that mysterious, apolitical man who was president before Obama?"

OK I misread the last part, and it's implying that virtually all of the money was properly distributed.

In a report issued ten years later.

Not buying it.

There would be two points made using both possible outcomes

1. Fartbongo is keeping the same failed leadership and not defending this country from Her enemies. Impeach him!

2. Fartbongo is not giving people that he fired a fair chance to defend themselves and is in violation of the law. Impeach him!

Oh wow, they found 6.6 billion. Awesome, thanks for the links. Do you have an article where they found the other 2.1 billion? Do you remember the Republican outrage at all that missing money.

Thats like the budget for one day of abortions at Planned Parenthood!

Also any updates on Rumsfeld missing 2.3 trillion?

On Sept. 10, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld declared war. Not on foreign terrorists, "the adversary's closer to home. It's the Pentagon bureaucracy," he said.

"According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions," Rumsfeld admitted.
