The Iraqi government in 2004 gave the Department of Defense access to about $3 billion to pay bills for certain contracts, and the department can only show what happened to about a third of that, the office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction says in the report.
From July 2004 through December 2007, DoD should have provided 42 monthly reports. However, it can locate only the first four reports."

Poor teabagger.
