'The Great Iraq Swindle' (WN0005)

Ever wondered where all the money spent in Iraq went? All those US tax dollars that mysteriously disappeared? The recent edition of Rolling Stone has this story on where it all went.

'In the history of balls, the world has never seen anything like the private contractors George W. Bush summoned to serve in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Collectively, they are the final, polished result of 231 years of natural selection in the crucible of American capitalism: a bureaucrat class capable of stealing the same dollar twice -- once from the taxpayer and once from a veteran in a wheelchair.'
