Please postpone this video if you've had a bad day. Relax a bit and come back to it. See what the monkey president has enabled..........out of control fraud by a rampant pentagon.

LOL, these Loony Left bloggers always give me a good laugh. Bush blew up the WTC to cover

up his crimes! And the Maniacape believes every word of it. (BTW, if you see some big black Suvs

pull up to your house, get out the back door quick, I'm certain Bush is monitoring KOTW and he

already has the NSA repositioning spy satellites over your street).

You don't get away with that Bush deadender. I'm in your face to call you a cowardly digressive seeking to hiss at me rather than address the video I put under your neocon nose.

Watch the video which was conveyed by C-SPAN and comment on that. The text referring to building 7 being deliberately blown up by a monkey boy conspiracy is not my assertion.

Nitwits and deadenders for Bush don't face the horrors they crafted. They hiss and spit off the subject like the hypocrites and cowards that they are.

Anyone want to discuss the video about the North Dakota US Senator? Or do you want to chortle and dance away from the point?

Thank you deadender, for taking the time to comment on North Dakota U.S. Senator Byron Dorgan's C-SPAN video on out of control fraud via the Pentagon which is the topic of this thread.

You are a mighty champion of intellectual prowess and social decency we may be sure! :)

"When it rains, it pours."

It should be absolutely clear to those with the courage and wisdom to SEE the evidence that the U.S. government is a gargantuan malignancy that is run by parasitic lunatics operating as a cult and essentially out of control with the U.S. military as its premier deviate.

Investigators: Millions in Iraq contracts never finished

By HOPE YEN, Associated Press Writer 17 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - Millions of dollars of lucrative Iraq reconstruction contracts were never finished because of excessive delays, poor performance or other factors, including failed projects that are being falsely described by the U.S. government as complete, federal investigators say.

The audit released Sunday by Stuart Bowen Jr., the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction, provides the latest snapshot of an uneven reconstruction effort that has cost U.S. taxpayers more than $100 billion. It also comes as several lawmakers have said they want the Iraqis to pick up more of the cost of reconstruction.

The special IG's review of 47,321 reconstruction projects worth billions of dollars found that at least 855 contracts were terminated by U.S. officials before their completion, primarily because of unforeseen factors such as violence and excessive costs. About 112 of those agreements were ended specifically because of the contractors' actual or anticipated poor performance.

In addition, the audit said many reconstruction projects were being described as complete or otherwise successful when they were not. In one case, the U.S. Agency for International Development contracted with Bechtel Corp. in 2004 to construct a $50 million children's hospital in Basra, only to "essentially terminate" the project in 2006 because of monthslong delays.

But rather than terminate the project, U.S. officials modified the contract to change the scope of the work. As a result, a U.S. database of Iraq reconstruction contracts shows the project as complete "when in fact the hospital was only 35 percent complete when work was stopped," said investigators in describing the practice of "descoping" as frequent.

"Descoping is an appropriate process but does mask problem projects to the extent they occur," the audit states.

Responding, USAID in the report said it disagreed that its descoping of the hospital project was "effectively a contract termination," but that it had changed the work because of escalating costs and security problems. Mark Tokola, the director of the Iraq transition assistance office, also responded that the database the IG's office reviewed of Iraq reconstruction contracts was incomplete.

Bowen's office said its review was preliminary and that it planned follow-up reviews to investigate descoping more closely. Investigators said they were also looking into whether contractors whose projects were terminated by the U.S. government due to inadequate performance might have been awarded new contracts later despite their poor records.

Investigators said the database they reviewed lacked full data on projects such as those done by USAID, the State Department, and those completed before 2006. But they said the figures cited in the report offered a baseline in terms of unfinished Iraq reconstruction contracts.

"Adding contract terminations from these (other) sources would certainly raise the number of terminated projects," the report states.

The audit comes amid renewed focus in recent months on potential abuse in contracting government-wide, such as Iraq reconstruction. Last year, congressional investigators said as much as $10 billion — or one in six dollars — charged by U.S. contractors for Iraq reconstruction were questionable or unsupported, and warned that significantly more taxpayer money was at risk.

In recent weeks, Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., has been working with Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, on legislation that would restrict future reconstruction dollars to loans instead of grants; require that Baghdad pay for fuel used by American troops and take over U.S. payments to predominantly Sunni fighters in the Awakening movement.

Danielle Brian, executive director of the watchdog group Project on Government Oversight, said the latest audit report points to significant U.S. taxpayer waste in current reconstruction efforts.

"The report paints a depressing picture of money being poured into failed Iraq reconstruction projects — contractors are killed, projects are blown up just before being completed, or the contractor just stops doing the work," she said.

Former workers accuse employees of improper activity, including the stealing of weapons, artwork and gold

Allegations fly at KBR hearing

WASHINGTON — KBR employees working in Iraq stole weapons, artwork and even gold to make spurs for cowboy boots, two former company workers told Senate Democrats on Monday.

Appearing before a Democrats-only panel looking into allegations of contracting abuses in Iraq, the witnesses accused their former co-workers of widespread improper activity.

KBR spokeswoman Heather Browne said the company would not comment at length because the claims are part of ongoing lawsuits.

"The witnesses who testified today raised claims that KBR has previously addressed. The government has reviewed the claims and refused to join lawsuits asserting them," Browne said.

Linda Warren, a 50-year-old Abilene woman who worked as a laundry foreman and recreation director for the Houston-based contracting giant in Iraq, told the Senate Democratic Policy Committee Monday that some of her American colleagues doing construction work in Iraqi palaces and municipal buildings took woodcarvings, tapestries and crystal "and even melted down gold to make spurs for cowboy boots."

Her allegations could not be independently verified.

Warren leveled her allegations in early 2004 after being reprimanded by a supervisor for giving water to Iraqi workers laboring in a sweltering laundry building when their own water supply was undrinkable.

Warren said the supervisor reminded her she had signed a confidentiality agreement and then threatened her by suggesting an American woman "wouldn't last very long on the streets of Baghdad."

That evening, with company managers present, she called KBR's ethics hot line in Houston to report her allegations. She eventually was escorted out of Baghdad by company security after KBR officials intercepted a threatening e-mail, Warren said.

Frank Cassaday, a former KBR ice plant operator, told lawmakers that a KBR foreman tried to take military equipment, including two rocket launchers, detonators and ammunition.

When he confronted the foreman, Cassaday said, "he told me to mind my own business."

Cassaday then told the camp manager. A military investigation confirmed his allegations, Cassaday said, but he did not elaborate on how the matter was resolved.

A third worker, Barry Halley, a former security manager for CAPE Environmental Management, alleged that after raising complaints with CAPE management, he was held in a room for several days by private security guards.

Les Flynn, Atlanta-based CAPE's chief operating officer, said that while some of Halley's allegations Monday were new, the company's insurance company had investigated his allegations.

"It appears they were found to be untrue," Flynn said.

The witnesses appeared at the Democratic Policy Committee's 13th hearing on contracting activities in Iraq. While Congress has had some bipartisan hearings regarding KBR, many of the allegations have come from this series of Democrats-only sessions.

Congressional investigations of KBR's activities in Iraq are almost invariably colored by politics, in no small part because Vice President Dick Cheney once headed KBR's former parent company, Halliburton Co.

Two weeks ago, the U.S. Army Sustainment Command reaffirmed its selection of KBR to participate in the 10-year logistical support contract valued at up to $150 billion.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!!!

Here's a classic example of neocon mindlessness. Notice the embarassingly-weak attempts at insult and the complete absence of any counter-point. The neocons are a predictable breed, you see.

See manscape, you finally made it. 2dim, a leader of fantasy land has now proven that you've arrived. This is how they respond when they can't come up with anything intelligent. But, to make it official you'll have to be blessed by the ramblings and inaccuracies of Professor Bryan.
