According to the article, the U.S. Government was allowed to tap into the Iraqee account and hopefully the missing funds were pumped back into the war effort by the U.S. Now that would be poetic justice.

KBR, the spawn of Satan (Dick Cheney) & Halliburton was given no-bid contract after no-bid contract in Iraq. Is it any wonder that everything was grossly over budget and that most of the funds are unaccounted for? Hard to believe we went to Iraq (instead of Afghanistan) for any reason other than lining the pockets of these war criminals.

Cheney will no doubt kick the bucket before anyone can unravel this mess. Fair trade I suppose.
