each Iraqi has received $1/month in aid since the war began

Center for Strategic and International studies has
concluded that of the $18,700,000,000.00 allocated and spent for Iraq since the war began, only $270,000,000 has actually been spent for the Iraqis.

The rest was 'overhead' cost overruns, security and the typical vigarish and corruption.

RE: each Iraqi has received $1/month in aid since the war began

Welcome to the new and improved privatized warfare of the 21st century. Cost overruns, profit skimming, kickbacks, padding, over billing, ad nauseum. But hey, thanks to the sacrifices of 1000 American and 15,000 Iraqi lives, we now know that Saddam had no WMD's--it was all worthwhile...and profitable.

More like "confirming what we knew the entire time". Neat!

It has been alleged that billions given to the Coalition Provisional Authority simply disappeared. When one considers all the millions of people who worked hard to pay that money in in taxes, simply for it to disappear - man its got to be the crime of the century.
