Bush legacy? Iraq report reveals $100 billion failure

E-mail Print PDF

An unpublished US government report says US-led efforts to rebuild Iraq were crippled by bureaucratic turf wars, violence and ignorance of the basic elements of Iraqi society, resulting in a 100-billion-dollar failure, The New York Times reported on its website.

The newspaper said it had gotten hold of a copy of the 513-page federal history titled 'Hard Lessons: The Iraq Reconstruction Experience,' that is circulating in Washington in draft form among a tight circle of technical reviewers, policy experts and senior officials.

TVNL Comment: This was not a "failure!" It was a looting. This was all about the friends of the Bush admin making a killing on government contracts.
