The special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction reported that the U.S. government has wasted tens of millions of dollars in reconstruction aid. When you spend more than $300 billion to help rebuild a war-torn country, there’s going to be a certain amount of waste and fraud. Still, this isn’t acceptable, and the report’s timing hurts President Bush’s new request for an additional $1.2 billion in new reconstruction aid.
