Iraq: Missing Iraq money may have been stolen, auditors say

Jun 14, 2011 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.latimes.com

After the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in March 2003, the George W. Bush administration flooded the conquered country with so much cash to pay for reconstruction and other projects in the first year that a new unit of measurement was born.

Thanks again, K.

I had thought that Bush's pals stole $8 Billion from this program. I am surprised to see that now it has shrunk to 6.6 Billion.

However, much of the $50-60 Bilion thrown away on poorly concieved and executed infrastructure projects has also been stolen, but more legally.

"SHOCK AND AWE" is more awesome to the US taxpayed than it was to the Ba'athists.

OW !

Thanks, GOP.

Undoubtedly, every American dollar that is taken by Obama from the American taxpayers and given to the Mozlem brothers and the Hamas, Hezbollah PLO, Fattah and Taliban terrorists through the regimes of Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Gaza, West bank, Libya and Pakistan is stolen and used by the terrorists against our US troops and America. While America is falling to its lowest point in Us history relating to its economy, debt top foreign hostile regimes, lowest house prices our money is spread by the Mozlem brothers' obsessed Obama to the terrorists that vowed to go on a Jihad war against America and Israel. GOP presidential candidates including Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann vowed to stop the arming of the terrorists with American money against our US troops as done on a daily basis by Obama and his liberal hordes.

Why do so many people have a problem questioning the scams that went on in the last administration? For a lot of folks is as if that period in time never happened.

A whole lot of sleazy, slimy less-than-aboveboard things went on between 2001 and 2009 and everyone in this country closed their eyes and saw nothing. Now all of a sudden these same people are the champions of truth and transparency? You see nothing hypocritical about this?

Bush pretty much did whatever he wanted to do no questions asked and if anyone did ask a question then God help them because they were called unAmerican and unpatriotic and a communist ad nauseum.

To this day nothing Bush did has even been acknowledged, much less seriously called into question even though his administration has admitted Iraq was a waste of time and money (and of course lives, but what's a few souls between friends?). Debacles of devastating magnitude happened during his watch and everyone smiled like brainwashed idiots and said nothing. Why is that? He wasn't a good president by any stretch of the imagination, so the only answer I can come up with is that he is a Republican and that's the only qualification he needs to be vindicated of any actions that caused this country harm.

But from day one Obama has been under a microscope and if he as much as has toast for breakfast everyone is there to examine it and decide whether the jelly is the right or wrong flavor.

I'm not advocating for Obama, I'm questioning whether the people of this nation truly care about the country or whether they are simply so bi-partisan that the country is now secondary to the party. If that's the case,then that's a scary thought because that's how Nazism was born. The party became the central focus of the people and the leaders.

What I'd really like to see is for Americans to step up to the plate and demand more accountability of ALL government leaders not just certain ones. And until that happens I'm not going to make judgments regarding one over the other knowing full well that all the others before him/her have been guilty of the same or worse.

We're not helping our country. We love to lay blame but we refuse to spread it around so that it covers everyone who deserves it.

GREAT, BECAUSE that is zero DOLLARS; unlike the GW Bush hoard of devouring locusts that descended upon the US Treasury.

The only pay-offs have been the other way; from the Saudi Royal family (financiers f September 11, 2001) to their clients, the BUSH family.

The press has been the driving force against Obama; and also in sweeping Bush's ca-ca under the rug.

There is your ultimate proof of how "liberal" the American corporate controlled press REALLY are.

This money belonged to Iraq. It's the two trillion dollars spent on the war that Bush stole from the American people.

It never left the US but it was stolen alright. It was used to bail the banks out so they could in turn start lending money again and get the economy rolling. Instead of lending it out they bought gov. bonds. Same as stealing as far as I'm concerned.

In that case, you should share your opinion with the US Attorney General.

By the way, the missing funds in question were Iraqi monies remainig in the "oil for food" account at the time of Iraq's invasion by imperialist forces in 2003. It wasn't "ours" to begin with.

It then should be of little surprise to know the first work in Behavioral Science research was established in England in 1882, while much of the early medical and psychiatric techniques involved in mind control were pioneered at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Germany.

The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations was set up in London in 1921 to study the "breaking point" of humans. Kurt Lewin, a German psychologist, became the director of the Tavistock Institute in 1932, about the same time Nazi Germany was increasing its research into neuropsychology, parapsychology and multi-generational occultism.

Interestingly, a progressive exchange of scientific ideas was taking place between England and Germany, most notably in the field of eugenics: the movement devoted to "improving" the human species through the control of hereditary factors in mating. The nefariously enigmatic union between the two countries was bonded, partly through the Order of the Golden Dawn, a secret society which consisted of many high ranking officials in the Nazi party and British aristocracy.

Top SS Nazi officer Heinrich Himmler, was in charge of a scientific project called Lebersborn, which included selective breeding and adoption of children, a peculiarly large number of twins among them.[2] The purpose of the program was to create a super-race (Aryans) who would have total allegiance to the cause of the Third Reich (New World Order).

Much of the preliminary experimentation concerning genetic engineering and behavior modification was conducted by Dr. Josef Mengele at Auschwitz, where he coldly analyzed the effects of trauma-bonding, eye-coloring and "twinning" upon his victims. Besides the insidious surgical experimentation performed at the concentration camp, some of the children were subjected to massive amounts of electroshock.

Sadly, many of them did not survive the brutality. Concurrently, "brain-washing" was carried out on inmates at Dachau, who were placed under hypnosis and given the hallucinogenic drug mescaline. During the war, parallel behavioral research was led by Dr. George Estabrooks of Colgate University. His involvement with the Army, CID, FBI and other agencies remains shrouded in secrecy. However, Estabrooks would occasionally "slip" and discuss his work involving the creation of hypno-programmed couriers and hypnotically-induced split personalities.[3]

http://www.voxfux.com/features/bush_child_sex ... On January 28, 2003, amid the furor of the impending war with Iraq the British press briefly reported on Operation Ore, the most thorough and comprehensive police investigation of crimes against children before being squashed by the Blair government. Besides implicating Rock guitarist Peter Townsend of the Who, the report claimed that senior members of Tony Blair's government were being investigated for pedophilia and the "enjoyment" of child-sex pornography. With the investigation reaching to senior members of his Government, Blair declared a news blackout on the story. http://www.spiritone.com/~gdy52150/littleboys ...
