It appears a good chunk of the money being spent to rebuild Iraq went to private security companies protecting the people doing the rebuilding. The exact cost still isn't known, but auditors think the U.S. has paid private security companies well over $6 billion to guard diplomats, troops, Iraqi officials and reconstruction workers in Iraq.

The special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction says that's about 12 percent of the $50 billion Americans have spent for reconstruction.
