the mind-boggling Truth about Iraq's money pit
Nothing I could say can adequately prepare you for the mind-boggling fate of billions upon billions of Iraqi dollars under US supervision.
This is not just 'water under the bridge' as one US official in the clip would have us believe. Even the word 'failure' does not adequately describe it."American law was suspended.
Iraqi law was suspended.
And Iraq basically became a Free-Fraud Zone.
In a Free-Fire Zone you can shoot at anybody you want.
In a Free-Fraud Zone you can steal anything you like."

"As trustees of the Iraq assets, we did a very poor job.
I think it was a failure.
After all, it was their money.
We should have spent it on the Iraqi people rather than sucking out of them and putting into the pockets of foreign businesses."

"And today, all across Iraq ordinary people are paying the price of that failure."
This is perhaps the greatest war-time swindle in history - a testament to just how criminal our government has become.
This administration not only dropped tens of thousands of bombs on Iraqis, they stole billions upon billions of their dollars. What makes it so remarkable is that they did it all out in the open. And, there's no end in sight.
Can you say kar-ma? What goes around comes around.
If we, as law-abiding Americans, don't bring these criminals to justice, we will end up PAYING FOR THEIR CRIMES.
Wait, what am I saying - we already ARE paying for their crimes!
While Iraqi newborns leave Iraqi hospitals in Braun cardboard boxes, Americans bleed increasingly larger chunks of their hard-earned money into the Death Star that makes this all possible.
Look at the WADS of freshly printed CASH being swindled RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES. That cash was printed specifically so that it can be stolen as it was.
The fact that it was printed was a freaking SWINDLE right there - the fact that they handed it to their buddies - for absolutely NOTHING in return - turned it into a DOUBLE SWINDLE.
HOLY CRAP! The whole world is a CRIME SCENE! And we're ALL witnesses!!!
